I normally just use Chrominum.
From the site:https://code.google.com/p/chromium/
Chromium is the open-source project behind Google Chrome.

So since they are basically the same, you can choose whichever one you like better.

I've used both. I like having actual Chrome because it has the pepper-flash, so when sites stop supporting the older 11.2 plugin, Chrome will still work. Although Firefox is still my default because Chrome/Chromium refuses to prompt to remember passwords on like 75% of the sites I use.
