Please DTRT about this problem in Chromium.
First please check that the situation has not changed since a year ago.
If it has not, then Chromium should be treated as a nonfree program
for the directory.

I think someone maintains a free and less-nasty modified version of Chromium.
We should list that.

Chrome contains an audio listening module.

  Even nastier, Chromium (supposedly "open source") automatically
loads the nonfree audio listening module at startup.  Effectively,
that module is part of Chromium, which means Chromium as a whole is
not really free software (nor open source).
