I have been looking at Chrome and think I am going to pass it by (for now). While is seems to make sense for the "average" internet user who wants a faster experience, some enhanced privacy and something "new," I am so used to using Firefox with my Add-Ons, that I don't know if I could go back.
I enjoy the comfort of having AdBlock Plus, FlashBlock, No Script, Google toolbar (the Merriam-Webster link is great for writing), among others. The genius of FireFox has been, to me, its ability to be easily customized.
Without that aspect, I would not want to switch browsers.
It's faster than Firefox, but quite honestly the difference between three seconds and one-and-a-half second isn't a big deal to me. I also had problems running movies on Chrome. And I love my Firefox plug-ins, of course. I'm stickin' with Firefox.

This deal is only good for the next hour, but it's pretty damn good. http://www.gotapex.com/l/?1VKF5WB0 Choose from the systems and customize. The really nice one is Dual Core (2 processors on the same die) P IV 2.
