Has anyone found an armhf binary later than v52? I'm looking at compiling my own, but it sounds daunting. 

I've found Firefox works better with YouTube anyways though, aside from one video that gave me the static noise YouTube on pi sometimes gets. It worked fine on chromium for that one though. I haven't had time to see if I can force html5 yet though.

My preference is for chromium, but YouTube is a big part of my web activity these days. Thankfully, with 2gb of ram, it seems to be able to handle keeping both open concurrently.

I think I just found the answer to my own question. I'll try when I get home.

Nope. Didn't work.  Out of date, I think.

You can get the files quite easily from here :

wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/309937053/..._armhf.deb
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/309937056/..._armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra_56.0.2924.76-0ubuntu2.1343_armhf.deb chromium-browser_56.0.2924.76-0ubuntu2.1343_armhf.deb
sudo apt-get install -f

BUT !!!  You WILL get dependency errors that you will need to work through systematically and satisfy

Alternatively, Chromium-browser is the default browser within the latest version of Raspbian, which is based on Debian. TinkerOS is based on Debian so you could try to modify your sources.list and add the rpi source. deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ jessie main contrib non-free rpi

That might allow you to install via :

apt-get update
apt-get install chromium-browser
