I understand that you don't want to start a browser flame war, and neither i do, but:

>Configuration

Sometimes Chrome is easier to configure (With Firefox you need to enable click to play in about:config, while Chrome has a checkbox somewhere in the "advanced" menu), sometimes is harder (Try to configure a proxy in chrome)

>Ease of migration

I haven't tested it myself, but i know that Firefox can load your history/bookmarks from Internet Explorer and Chrome. If you mean between the same browser, Firefox Sync is on par with Chrome for me.

>Developer tools

Chrome has better tools ootb, but you can install Firebug in Firefox which is mostly on par.

>Extensibility

You're talking about addon? Because Firefox's addon can be way more powerful than Chrome's addon.

>System footprint

Firefox usually uses less memory than Chrome (but it's more prone to memory leaks). For the CPU, i don't know about Chrome, but my Firefox installation is currently using about ~1% of it
