I put chromium on my desktop computer, but now it wont set as default browser (no metro mode). Instead I see three IE icons on the "Set as Default" box?

Have you tried this? Control Panel>Programs>Default Programs>Set Your Default Programs>Click onGoogle Chrome>Click on Choose Defaults for this Program>Check boxes for HTTP and HTTPS>Click on "Save" and close out open windows. Chrome should now be your default browser - at least it works for me.
