Do you envision the possibility of adding Chromium as well?

There are plans but no ETA.

I’ve given it CUPS access using Flatseal but it still doesn’t appear to see printers.

Side question: who’s building the binary? Only Google has the right to distribute stuff with Google Chrome branding, right?

Update on the printing issue: Chrome not seeing printers was a CUPS issue, so that’s squared away. But even if it sees printers, no printing command actually runs, nothing gets added to the print queue. In addition, system dialog doesn’t list any printer at all.
