Stable channel for Chromium hits 43

Building on my experiences with chromium-dev (the development channel of the Chromium browser which is currently at version 44), I have made similar changes to my latest package for the chromium browser and its widevine and pepperflash plugins.

A new stable release (32.0.1700.77) for […]
