Many Linux Lite users seem to think that Chrome and/or Chromium is a better browser choice than Firefox. Personally, concerning Linux Lite (Ubuntu based), I doubt there is a single real reason why Chrome or Chromium is better choice. In fact Firefox is now actually integrated into Ubuntu to manage resources much better than Chrome/Chromium and better aimed at the future concerning web extensions. I doubt there is a single technical real reason to use Chrome/Chromium in Ubuntu anymore, and in fact Firefox is technically superior in Linux. Don't answer this thread with opinions, anecdotal experiences, personal preferences, or suggestions for alternative browsers. This is not a request for your opinions. Answer with a technical real reason why Chrome/Chromium is a better choice. Good luck, because it definitely is NOT a better choice. The pseudo-tech Web is fueled by misinformation and poorly drawn preferences and opinion. LL is beautiful system, and Firefox is wonderfully integrated into it. On 64bit hardware with 4G of RAM or more there is no sensible technical reason to add alternative browsers to it.

Let me rephrase the issue:

Actually, Firefox is slow and very resource hungry.

I'm not sure what you're asking to be a "technical real reason" since you started by giving your personal opinion on why you think Firefox is a better choice.  I don't really like chrome, but chromium has proven to be a very reliable browser, at least that's been my experience so far. In any case, web browsers are a matter of tastes and needs, whichever works better for you then stick to it till it doesn't anymore and restart the "best web browser" hunt again lol...
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)
