I'm no big Firefox fan, but initial startup time isn't a strong criteria for me when picking a browser.

Chrome is not a lot like Chromium, but yes, Chromium is the open source part of Chrome.

Firefox is a memory hog on a an epic scale, and the programmers involved can't see anything wrong with that. FAIL!

But all Google products are massive resource-hogs too. It takes a lot of resources to spy continously on the users. For example, I doubled my Android phone's battery life by hunting down and disable all Google spying related stuff I could find.
