Why is it so impossibly difficult to get chromium browser in Ubuntu? Official Ubuntu source switched to snap. Official Chromium website points to Chrome. Official Chromium ppa are dead at version 30.

if [ ! "$POSITION" ]; then exit; fi
ATTEMPT=1
while [ $ATTEMPT -lt 10 ] && ! curl -f -o chrome-linux.zip "googleapis.com/download/storag"; do
POSITION=$((POSITION-1))
ATTEMPT=$((ATTEMPT+1))
