If you have low memory, Firefox is much better than Chromium-Browser,
and many Lubuntu users have old computers with low memory.
(Chromium-Browser just stops with a funny message). I think the balance
between these two browsers will vary with time.

But maybe you are writing about Chrome (the proprietary code)?

Anyway it is easy to install another browser and have two, or remove the
one you don't like, so it is not really a big issue :-)
