It's just a browser, unless it has some "Once you use them you can't live without" features, like tabbed browsing was to firefox, that the other browsers don't have yet, it's not worth it to me.
I actually like firefox in Linux better then the Windows version.
I prefer firefox in linux as well .. much more stable and less of a memory hog.
Chrome functions as a 'just a browser'. They haven't added any new functionality and in that sense I completely agree with you .. why change to something new if there are no new features.
However, the architecture and design of the browser leads me to believe
(I can't know because they don't have a linux version yet) that Chrome will drastically outperform current browsers within a couple of iterations. As they work out the bugs, this browser should fly
and it should be much more robust.
Only time will tell .. I'm enjoying reading the comments in this thread but i'm also a bit envious of those who are able to put the browser to the test.
Google .. hurry up and finish your linux port already!
