Evidently chromium doesn't support the "-remote openURL" syntax.

You can fix this by adding


to ~/.surfraw.conf (or ~/.config/surfraw/conf)

I've just committed a fix upstream to make SURFRAW_graphical_remote=no
the default.

I've downgraded the severity as it only affects one browser (well,
that I know of) and there is a workaround.
