I never thought I would say this, I used to be a die hard Firefox user, but lately it has been really glitchy. I had to switch to Chrome for work and have found some really great things. My favorite thing about Chrome is that you can store all of your bookmarks online, that way they are available just by logging in to your gmail account, no matter what device you are on. Firefox just started doing something similar but you have to give each device permission and it is a pain in the neck to get it set up.
As far as safety, both Chrome and Firefox are extremely secure web browsers.
Both are good. Chrome sometimes get a bit weird and has got some issues, a bit complex to download and that process becomes hard ( and irritating too! ) if you have a limited/slow internet plan, in such a case (so) i would say Firefox...

I use Chrome now, due to some issues with Firefox (something about Adobe Flash player wasn't working properly. That upset me a lot, haha). The only downside I have with Google Chrome is that sometimes, it restarts with no warning because it crashed, but maybe that's just my computer. Secondly, sometimes links given to you by someone else doesn't work, saying that the webpage was unavailable. It's not a big deal, just search the URL on Google and it works just fine. But, on the other hand, I changed my theme to an Avenged Sevenfold theme! :D here's a screenshot: http://www.iaza.com/work/130625C/iaza16950866738500.png
Speed, performance, and feature wise, Firefox and Chrome are pretty equal (a few Ms off here and there for speed, a few rarely used Web standards, and different implementations of features are minor quibbling points).
Where the differences are is the orgs behind the products.
Google: For-profit organization that has been shown in the past not to respect user privacy, feeds much of what you do in Chrome back to their servers to adjust the types of ads you see in chrome, doesn't have your best interests or the internet's interests at heart, but only their profit.
Mozilla: Non-Profit that not only respects user privacy (rated highest in privacy respecting organizations in 2012), but also tries to do what is best for users and the web. With no shares or stockholders, Mozilla is accountable to no-body but the user. Your data is always safe with us, and we always strive to make Firefox, and the web, the best they can be for you, not for advertisers.
Chrome in my opinion takes up too many resources to run and eats up alot of virtual memory (ram) just check your task manager. Firefox on the otherhand is a nice backup browser, stable and safe with tons of extensions that you can personalize it with. However for speed and elegance whilst keeping your resourcing low I choose Opera and have for many years
