Chrome is a Google product and uses other Google products - so for
instance it calls Google Docs to render PDFs and Microsoft Office

If you want that functionality in Firefox, just install the
`mozplugger` package. Its defaults should Just Work and you should
find that all the stuff that Chrome can display, now Firefox can too.

But you might be right about Gmail functionality. I leave both
browsers open - Gmail in Chrome, everything else in Firefox, which
I've customised quite a lot with extensions. I don't notice any
functional difference in Gmail but I might have just missed it,
because I rarely use it in Firefox.
