Chromium is the free open source version of Google Chrome. This package takes a very long time to compile.

# emerge www-client/chromium

You may instead accept all licenses and emerge google-chrome (which is binary, and not open source), if you prefer a shorter compile time.

# emerge www-client/google-chrome
