Running  without a ~/.surfraw.conf. Opens a new window with the home page.
And get the following message after it runs .
Running  with ~/.surfraw.conf with SURFRAW_graphical_browser=/usr/bin/chromium.
Opens a new tab in a current browsing session. But with the following in the
navigation bar: openurl%28http//www.imdb.com/find?s=all&q=test) And also get the
following message after it runs .
Running , works as expected. A new tab is opened in a current browsing
session, with the correct page and results. Note, having ~/.surfraw.conf in
place or not has no affect using this method.
It would be nice if using  would just work and not have to use  each time
one wants to use surfraw with chromium.
