Hi Dave

It is definitely not recommended, even if you can install a future
version it might introduce subtle bugs. The best way to do this is:

1. Clone the aports repository.
2. cd to chromium
3. abuild -rK

But even that might fail, because packages have been renamed or aren't
compatible anymore. In that case you have to backport and build even
more packages. And be aware that chromium is one of these packages
that takes forever to build.

So in the end upgrading to 3.7 is the recommended way.

Best,
