My take on Chrome/Iron ( I tried both, Iron is better) is that its good for casual surfing ~ 3-4 tabs, Chrome sucks at handling many tabs (both in surfing speed and sometimes switching tabs too) which I need.

I recently swapped from Firefox to Pale Moon which is a mod of the source code of Firefox (sauce: http://www.palemoon.org/ ) which is noticeably faster than Firefox.
The only gripe i have about Firefox is that it cannot support WLM auto Hotmail sign in :/

I hate switching browsers. I was on IE for the longest time, and just got firefox like 3 years ago. I think I'm good for the next 10 years.

I like firefox, it's secure and stable, and my computer is good enough for me to not be bothered by speed.

The browser I hate most (besides IE) is the Safari browser on iPod Touch.

well been on iron for while and still love it.
it is faster and you dont need to restart for addons, and spliting tabs is genius, im on duel screens so can have youtube on one with forums on other. with out starting it up again...

but still some addons i miss from FF, that will stay for a while longer. cant DL youtube now in iron since it changed other day, FF i can though

Chrome and Iron are improved browsers. However, the plug-ins of firefox make me stick with it. Mainly the ad-blockers, one a site would like watch videos because I had block theirs... anyhow I used said ad blocker to block their redirect script and watched the video. Also! My Pandora radio is ad free, and I don't have a premium account.
