Not having Google tracking your every move (don't forget that Google is an advertising company, that only makes products to further that interest) is reason enough for me to avoid Chrome, but making the browser "fast" by skipping things like image color management, using lower quality text rendering and poor quality image scaling (important on retina displays) are also things to consider.
Chrome is actually the most memory-hungry browser on the market right now, it's just that they split it over so many processes, that people often don't notice it. The "Chrome is fastest" mantra that I've seen posted all around the web in the last year or so, simply isn't true. The only reason I can see where people might think that, is that they're comparing a fresh browser install with no extensions etc. to an older install of Safari or Firefox that has a big history file, lots of extensions and bookmarks set up etc. If they compared a fresh install of each, they would find that it's definitely not the case.
I've also found Chrome to be far less stable than other browsers ever since they integrated Flash. (frankly, I want to avoid Flash as much as possible)

I haven't heard of any issues regarding crashing on Chrome. All I've heard is that it looks like ****** on the Retina version (not talking about Canary). Thanks for thhe heads up though.
