I'm using google-chrome-stable_current 32 bit rpm (for Fedora/openSUSE), which I downloaded direct from the Chrome site. You say openSUSE provides chromium. All I had installed by default was Firefox and Konqueror and searching for chromium in YaST produces no results.

Traditionally I have always used KDE as my default desktop in SUSE, so I am stuck with the bug. Gnome doesn't seem right somehow with this distro. Anyway, I am really beginning to like KDE4.

1 I can confirm I cannot set Chrome as the default browser.
2 I can confirm that it claims not to be the default browser and, sure enough, it isn't. Clicking on a URL opens Firefox.
Not really a great problem. Only a minor instance of "doesn't work as it should".
I have used 11.3 for a few days now and it is behaving itself, but I am hard pushed to discover what particular advantages it has over 11.2, which I continue to run in parallel.
