Now, we *only* have Chromium on the machine for use with the NHS Near Me video service. (Which could be made to work with other browsers, but 🤷)

But it baffles us that given it offers nothing appreciably different as a piece of software in terms of features or performance, that Chromium takes SO long to compile.

Indeed, Chromium compiling on all 8 cores will fail on 16GB of RAM, and needs 32GB to build consistently.

7 hrs vs 1 hr.
What does that extra 6hrs really gain other than heating 🤣
