I'm just wondering, will you dump Firefox for Google Chrome when it's available to Linux?

No, because I don't use Linux... ;-)

However, I use Windows and I dumped Firefox for Google Chrome.

Doubt it, on Windows (When I have to use it) I swapped to Chrome for a while to try it out, and came back to Firefox after a while. I don't know why but Firefox "feels" better. I've still got Chrome installed but rarely use it.

When it comes out on Linux/Mac, I'll try it. But I expect I'll do the same again.

If they make it less ugly and faster on Mac, I'll consider it.

Nope, i've already chosen Midori (also WebKit) over both Firefox and Chrome. It has the same speed advantages as chrome, uses webkit, and will integrate well with the linux desktop. A shoutout to epiphany-webkit as well =]

From Mac user side – it depends of the quality and number of upcoming Chrome extensions.

When it will available, I will install it but I don't think I will use it everyday...

As a web developer, I use the Firefox extension "Firebug" XXX times per day. If there isn't a Firebug-like in Chrome, it will be useless for me.

Using it already on a daily basis in Ubuntu. For Flash I still need to run Firefox occasionally, because plugins don't work in Chrome yet, but for the rest, Chrome is really a lot faster. Hopefully Mozilla will get just as fast in the future, because feature-wise they are a lot more interesting (Ogg/Theora video support, Ubiquity, Weave, Personas).
