Does Chrome do plug-ins and extensions?
Despite FF's glacial launch and quit (no big deal, really - once it's fired up, it's fine), I'm not sure that I'd want to go back to a browser that's just a simple browser.
I only do a few productivity enhancing add-ons ( don't have the time to waste with the fun stuff, unfortunately ), and they really do make a lot of stuff simpler, faster, better organized, etc.
Now, I'm not that familiar with the Chrome way of doing things, but suspect it precludes any web app specific persistent caches over indefinite number of sessions ( that also mirror server caches ) - If so, that would be a deal breaker with some heavy lifting web apps that do that sort of thing - or any other caching outside of the browser's normal caching.
Edit: On second thought, I really should VPN all the time, including at home, wherever, and just suck it up when I'm using the browser, since some of my log-ins (such as CMF front ends, versus SFTPing to the directory) aren't https ( therefore text 'in the clear' ). My Macs are locked down tight, whitelisted ports, no ping response, good passwords, etc, and the LAN is secure; but anything 'in the clear' is 'in the clear'.
