    I would use the one from official repository, Chromium, unless you specifically need the other.

    It's nice. Unfortunately I don't think Chrome uses any sandbox on Linux.

    Incorrect according to this table. And it says that even Chromium has it enabled under Ubuntu and Gentoo.

    That's a nice table. I remember having read it before and its contents made me prefer Chrome over Chromium.

    Yes, that contradicts what the table says regarding the sandbox. However, there is no hint when this site was last updated. The table (updated in March 2011), on the other hand, is very specific in saying:
