Hi Michael,

Thanks for the help. I took a look at unity-chromium-extension and managed to
get uBlock installed in the same way but there are a couple problems until
https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=420373 gets fixed. As
mentioned in the issue report, a private key needs to be included in the Debian
source package. The other problem is it wont be possible to create a
ublock-common package containing the common files between the Firefox and
Chromium versions as there is no way to link to the files from the Chromium
