I am using firefox since 2009 but didn't find another browser fits in my need however many of my friends recommending to use Chrome. I want to know is there any major feature available in it?

Haven't found anything extra in Chrome. I am also using Firefox as my default browser since the past 4 years and found it more secure and helpful with lots of SEO friendly addons.

No difference at. Things runs smoothly in both. Mozilla Firefox updates are just great to get rid of bugs and errors if any

That is not completely true actually. While for the average user things might seem pretty much the same, there are some pretty visible distinctions between the both. As a matter of fact, a very high percentage of developers will tell you that they predominantly use Chrome, both in work and in office.

Chrome is definitely the faster one, hands down. The initial setup is more polished and optimized for better performance than Firefox. That being said FF seem to be much more customizable, providing better functioning plugins which do the job right. So if you know what you are doing you can enhance your Firefox damn well. Same logic applies to security. While both essentially well secured, the FF plugins seem to do a better job of increasing the level of protection you can get from a browser. In terms of syncing Chrome does seem to get the upper hand, making it very easy to sync all information from different types of devices...

...and those are just a few off the top of my head. So I can see where you are all going when you suggest that the browsers are pretty much the same, but for a more advanced user the two cannot be more different (and still better than IE )

Have been using Ffox from the beginning, but there are now more and more features and add-ons available solely for Chrome, so I use both, depends on the activity. For work I prefer Ffox, but for leisure Chrome is my choice.

I was in the same boat, I finally switched to chrome but I have a couple issues still. At least it doesn't crash though like Firefox!

My issues with Chrome:

First I don't like the one search bar, something I want to do a url and sometimes I want to search for the url. As a marketer you do both often.

Second my password manager Roboform makes Chrome do a plug in popped up message every time I open it. Drives me nuts.

Third I hate contributing more to Google they have way too much control already.

Oh yeah and that you can't right click a image to see the size, what the heck! You have to inspect the element or some crap.
