Best Chromium Web Browser

Hi, I'm currently using Opera 10.51 and have the urge to switch browsers. Which chromium based web browser is the best. I would like to have the same functionality as opera (mouse gestures, speed dial etc...)
Thanks in advance

Take a look at this list and choose on your own, personal preference is likely going to outweigh anything else. By the way, Opera is based on Presto, so Chromium based browsers will be a bit different.

Chrome has extensions for both Speed Dial (which I'm using now and absolutely love) and mouse gestures.

Chrome Speed Dial

I'm using the latest Dev version of Chrome, and the speed and stability is awesome.

Is it ctrl+(1-9) for the speed dial like in Opera? And is the mouse gestures similar to Opera?

The keyboard shortcuts can be turned on in the Speed Dial extension options, not sure about the mouse gestures, as I don't use that one.
