I should clarify that by Chrome, I really mean Chromium, the free and
open source version of Chrome; http://code.google.com/chromium/.

We'd like to stop eviscerating Firefox with Torbutton.  Rather, we could
integrate torbutton functionality into private/incognito browsing mode.
 Chromium is relatively new, and we're working with the team to
implement the APIs necessary to integration of a truly anonymous/private
browsing mode.

We'd also like to work with Mozilla on the same pathway, but so far we
haven't made the right connections in the organization to have this happen.
