comment Why doesn't Chromium get quicker updates?
You can also set up a repository that gives you the latest stable, beta or development release of Chromium. Those are the PPAs belonging to this team on Launchpad: launchpad.net/~chromium-daily For what it's worth, downloading the official Chrome deb package from Google also sets you up with a repository for updates. It does it for you when you install the package.

comment Can I choose between GNOME Shell and Unity on login?
You will also want to install the package <a href="apt:gnome-tweak-tool">gnome-tweak-tool</a>. After installing gnome-shell (more precisely, gnome-themes-standard, which comes with it), you will be able to select the Adwaita theme for windows and GTK+, and the Gnome theme for icons. I really recommend doing this, because Gnome Shell has been crafted very carefully around those themes :)

comment What is the “keyring” or “keychain”?
If you're concerned about any of this, the app Erigami mentions lets you tighten this a little more. You can temporarily lock a keyring or change its password so you always have to unlock it separately at login, for example. You can find those options if you right click a keyring in the Passwords list.

comment What is the “keyring” or “keychain”?
To clarify on the “doing it right” part, the particular feature it does is one-way encryption, so your passwords under the keyring are all encrypted and the only way to decrypt them is to enter a password. That would be a real pain if you had to do it for every application, but it's really the only way to be sure. Normally the step of unencrypting your keyring happens invisibly in Ubuntu, because the password you enter to log in is the same as your keyring password.
