    Chrome drains much more battery power than Safari. Since the battery time is the most important thing for me, I am using Safari. In terms of speed, both browsers seem to be fast enough.

    Safari is way better than Chrome on Mavericks hands down (At least for me anyway). Drains far less battery than chrome and Safari seems more responsive than chrome in my experience.

    Chrome is being bloated by Google. I'd stick to Safari.

    When I upgraded to Mavericks, Chrome was a dog so based on others' recommendations I went to Safari. I really missed some of the plugins on Chrome and tab/bookmark sync. On a whim, I uninstalled Chrome and reinstalled it.

    The difference is significant. Chrome still seems to consume more resources doing specific things like playing a YouTube video or a Facebook game, so I use Safari for those, and Chrome for everything else.

    I use both. Chrome for anything with Flash, which I don't otherwise use. And for Google stuff, like Maps, Voice, Gmail, etc. Just seems to work easier, although I'm sure Safari probably would too. And YouTube.

    Safari for the rest, although sometimes Firefox.

    No reason to stick with only one.
