They run about the same in my opinon. You could easily have both installed and run them side by side. Basically chrome is just a rebrand and tweak of the chromium project.

I personally use chromium on my Linux system but if I'm on a Windows or Mac I will use Chrome.

Chrome includes Pepper Flash and codec/s which Chromium doesn't . The settings are pretty much the same other wise and If you sign in to Google Services with either browser there are no real privacy advantages . Chrome tracks your ip and location when the browser is downloaded and Chromium comes from the repository with no ties to Google.
