Using other browsers than FF feels awkward to me. I got so much used to it lol.

Gotta try that beta one now.

To be honest all the speed arguments are redundant now. The only limitation is the users actual limit speed.
So basically browser is PERSONAL preference now. Why can't people understand that :'(

You hate waiting 3 seconds? You wouldn't last long in an airport would you..
Firefox and Chrome take exactly the same time to boot up for me.

And as for Firefox speed, try removing some addons, every addon slows down a browser, compare vanilla browsers to vanilla browsers. Or get FasterFox Lite or try Firefox 5 Beta.

This.

Chrome may open a tiny bit faster and be faster in stuff I'll never use, but its addons are very lacking.

Not at all, try using an amd 64 turion processor with 1gb of ram with windows 7 huge difference between firefox and chrome. sometimes a tab will freeze in chrome, but when firefox freezes the entire browser freezes. Firefox needs to give each tab its own process like chrome (without making it more of a memory hog).

That being said last I heard, which was a few years ago was that google didn't allow developers enough control over the browser to permit noscript and ad blocking features presumably because they are an ad company. You were(are?) only able to whitelist all scripts on a page or none on a page, etc.
You may think this is a non-issue until a site you like gets hacked, but the only thing the hacker adds is a script from their site to install malware on your computer, this is especially a problem if you use a search engine a lot and visit a lot of smaller sites/forums that you have never heard of.....

For me firefox + noscript + flashblock + betterprivacy + ghostery + cookie monster (all cookies blocked by default) + RSSticker (because the mainstream news sucks) > Chrome's better interface + stability + speed

Also I trust mozilla more than I trust google, but then again most people don't have google-analytics redirecting to 127.0.0.1 (which even dropbox uses). That being said chrome is my backup browser when it won't work with all my addons or firefox freezes for a few minutes....

Could you give a list of the settings you used?
