Chrome is based on Chromium. Whoever doubts of user good intentions can always compile Chromium from source. It will not have H.264 video codec support, which Chrome has and Firefox doesn't, but it will work.
Anyway, most of the claims of privacy invasion of Chrome are things meant to improve user experience and can be disabled in the Chrome options.
