Leaving aside the actual inferiority of Chromium with respect to FF (which can be objectively assessed based on features, even the Chromium pushers on the video admitted that) , I find the prime reason given to the change indefensible on many levels.

Still wish there was a way they could have Chrome instead of Chromium...as you said, Chromium is like a stripped down version, where as (to me) Chrome is quite comparable to Firefox and even has slightly better web page rendering...it compares to safari on the mac and that's probably because it's underbase is quite similiar...
it depends, I myself use chromium as the main web browser before, but since last year, I found firefox is more suitable for me. if you do not want use firefox, just set chromium as your default web brower, it's easy, you do not have to wait for chromium become the default of the UBUNTU, as far as i know, firefox still has lots of fans like me
Also, part of the reason Chrome is gaining popularity is the shear amount of advertising. Chrome is suggesested on so many web installs etc. "make the web faster". So many of my users install it or ask if they "need" to install it because it says it will make the "web faster". Then boom it is their default web browser. Many of them have no idea they made the switch to another browser. LOL
I find Firefox to be better all round. I have even had Chrome crash on google's own google apps where Firefox has worked perfectly.
