I'd use Chrome if....
They fixed some of the little things.
I've never liked their bookmarks setup. You can download "extensions" that do an ok job at bookmarks, but I don't think it works as well as Firefox (and you can't seem to move the button the left side of the address bar).
Actually that's the sole reason I don't use Chrome. I can't stand using bookmarks on it. How hard would it be to enable a decent looking FF/IE style bookmarks menu, with a single button that can me mounted on the left (or right) side of the address bar...
Convention over configuration is what Chrome is doing there. You can see it all across the application.
Firefox tends to take the opposite approach.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the extensions limitations in Chrome... Firefox allows more freedom for the extension designers. Mostly I miss the long strip of a weather addon I use in FF, with radar, hourly, 5 day easily available, and with Now, tomorrow, and the next day visible without clicking on anything.

I suppose that makes sense. I think Chrome functions well. It runs smoother than Firefox (at least for me), but it is the inability to configure it the way I like that keeps me using Firefox.
Even when firefox does things I don't like (like entirees for the bookmarks toolbar and unsorted bookmarks in the bookmark drop down) if you dig down deep enough, there's still a way to tweak it the way you like it.
