Also, is it strange that before I change anything around FF and Chromium are within 50-100MB of each other with FF using the most? I'm starting to think I need my eyes fixed.

Chromium uses about 60MB per tab, if you add that up 4 tabs is over 200MB. That's not including other things though, like plugins and the core browser. You add that and you can easily get 250-300MB for 4 tabs, maybe even more. You have to take all the Chromium processes and add them up. Honestly it's almost misleading on how Chromium does things, because it splits it all up into individual processes it makes it harder for the end user to figure out the resources being used. =) It's nothing more than diversion, helps you think it's "faster". Go ahead though, I use the gnome system monitor but it's no different than top, you'll see what I mean.

Try using Chrome on a machine with less than 1GB of RAM and a single core. Not pretty. Firefox, as slow as it is (especially on a machine like that), is still a preferable choice over Chrome.
If you already have a speedy machine it really does not matter what you use in terms of performance. Just get whatever has the best features for you (and in my case, that´s FF plugins).
