What is the 'standard' 'preferred' 'recommended' way of installing Chromium in Fedora22 Workstation?

It should be easy to undo and should be as close to Fedora as possible in terms of privacy policies, freedoms, philosophy.

Lastly, if not Chromium, what is the best way of installing Chrome?

I used copr to install Chromium (this is the best way in my opinion):

$ sudo dnf copr enable churchyard/chromium-russianfedora 
$ sudo dnf install chromium

Google Chrome is best installed with the RPM file from

It installs an own repository file, so a dnf upgradeupdates Google Chrome as well. (Although not with delta rpms)

The question was how to install Chromium, not Chrome.

The last sentence in the question clearly states that Chrome is a viable option, so I answered correctly.
