    I moved to Chrome, and I'm quite happy with it so far.
    The extensions I use:

    . Xmarks
    . Adblock plus
    . Speed Dial
    . Chrome Flag
    . ChromeAccess
    . Sabconnect++
    . smooth scroll
    . Docs PDF/PowerPoint Viewer
    . IE tab
    . stop Autoplay for YouTube

    i found that with Firefox the more extensions the more CPU and load up time it took up, so hopefully it'll be better with Chrome. Also looking forwar for HTML5 to gather up popularity as the CPU should be lower when watching media online.

    I'm not sure if video streamers will be ditching flash for html5. Chrome usually(not always) needs less CPU to run than firefox and chrome isn't always faster than ffox. About extensions, there isn't noscript or any real alternative. There are bunch of blockers but they are shitty and not even half as effective as noscript, they do not filter the elements, they just hide them

    Things which you can use in Mozilla firefox you can never try on chrome. Even Google toolbar doesn't work on chrome.

    Chrome <3
    All the good addons have already been mentioned. Autorefresh plus is pretty useful.
