I wanted to bring up the discussion about replacing Chromium with Firefox
in 12.04.
I'm not sure if this was discussed on UDS, but in my opinion, this is worth
looking into.

Firefox has reduced it's memory usage dramatically, and I'm currently
trying out Firefox 7 as a replacement.
I do not have detailed memory benchmarks (yet!), but I will definitely do
some benchmarks in the near future.
However, I'm pretty sure Firefox has better (lower) memory usage when
having several tabs open (more than 3).

Other reasons to switch:
GTK3
Better desktop integration (Chromium themeing is limited and hard to
include as default)

What do you guys think?
