Hello Alex,

Thanks for the tips, I've uploaded the hint and hope someone can test it on a 
32 bit version. It should work just fine on a 32 bit system, the only thing 
I'm not sure about is linking the chromium binary. I read somewhere that 
linking the final binary requires a 64 bit environment.

I don't know if this is true and hope someone with a 32 bit system can test 

BTW i noticed some slashes at the end of lines with URL in the hint have gone
