What I love about chrome is that with one click i get access to a very easy live editing platform.
right click inspect element, select the code that needs to do something, element highlights when mouseover the code element so you easily see you have the right portion. right click edit add html and change on the fly.
or simply edit the css values by double clicking, add them, remove them add you go. You can even delete entire nodes with one click.
Its the most versatile live editor I have ever encountered, because changes get displayed immediately. I have tired Firefox, but its clumsy compared to chrome. Try finding a single word in all related files in Firefox. in Chrome you can do that with one tab click and search word and it searches all the files.
deleting and viewing cookies, even editing them, from the development console its all to easy. The only reason i keep Firefox is 3d view and even that gets layers wrong y76% of the time. try absolute in relative in able in relative a couple of times with several overlaps. it loses track.

Google invested a lot in Mozilla. Actually they closed a 300 million dollars deal that should get Mozilla plenty of money to hire a lot of great developers to improve Firefox faster.
The problem is that Firefox is not being developed fast enough. It is still much slower, a memory hog, and it still does not provide all the features that it should. Instead Mozilla seems to be burying their on a mobile phone project, as if the market needs more mobile platforms.
Firefox was good when it was leading innovation. It still has features that are better than in Chrome, but it seems to be hard for Mozilla to keep the pace with Google.

I would advice people to test newer versions of firefox and see how much less ram is using in comparison to other browsers these days. They have also worked a problem with the firefox addons so that they also keep a low footprint on memory usage.

Maybe my perception of Firefox being too slow is outdated. After all, only recently they introduced support to SPDY (AKA HTTP 2) protocol, which makes many sites appear much faster (specially Google's).
