I managed to get a little bit further by installing the "chromium-browser" package from "trusty" (which appears to be the same underlying Chromium version backported; more exactly, package version "49.0.2623.108-0ubuntu0.").

That at least lets the browser come up, but all the pages crash (as opposed to the entire browser crashing, like the xenial version does).

When I add "--no-sandbox" (which is inherently dangerous and adds an appropriate warning to the UI every time you launch chrome), I can get much further and actually have a functional Chromium instance (but using "--no-sandbox" is obviously pretty far from ideal).
