Back in the day, you would hear often something along the lines of "Chrome is good, but I keep coming back to Firefox because of Firebug". Fast forward to today and debugging with Firebug feels clumsy and sluggish whenever there's something Firefox specific to debug (no offense to the devs of firebug, if it wasn't because of them the chrome dev tools wouldn't exist; it's just lagging a bit behind nowadays)

Wow- I have to say I disagree. For serious debug work I go to firebug. Chrome seems clunky- and I can never find what I'm looking for. Maybe depends on what you're used to.

Try getting used to Chrome, I assure you you won't look back after a while. The event timeline for instance is one thing completely absent in firebug and invaluable to debug client performance.
