Chromium and Firefox Web Browsers Are Now Installable as Snaps on Ubuntu Linux

Canonical’s Snappy technologies are becoming more and more popular these days as the company behind the widely used Ubuntu plans to enable them by default and even make them a first-class citizen in future releases of its Linux-based operating system. The latest apps to be ported to the Snap format are the well-known Chromium and Mozilla Firefox web browsers, which can now be installed on Ubuntu and other Snappy-enabled GNU/Linux distributions with a simple command in a Terminal app or directly from the Snappy Store.
