Unlike other modern web browsers, which can only run one process at a time, Google Chrome will give each tab its own process. This speeds up overall performance and saves the entire browser from crashing when one tab causes problems.
The multi-process design requires more memory allocation up front but less memory over time as users tend to multitask. It also prevents your computer from slowing down after you browse for an extended period of time and open/close lots of tabs.

... but add to that everyone who might get pestered and/or sold on it by all the Google services they use. Google has an advantage over FF because they manage to put lots of words in front of eyeballs every day. Can you imagine if they put a serious-looking "update your browser" message in the top spot of every Adsense block?

What I don't like
