2 things.

1) You will chose the personal repo, but is not trusted, is under your
risk, with AUR you have the option to see the source of the pkg!,
that's why AUR ;), in the past trusted users had their own repos, then
[community] was created. IMHO, there are repos with chromium packages,
if you want the binary version of them instead the AUR PKGBUILD, then
add those repos under your own risk ;).

2) No top-posting thanks.
