I relapsed (during February) back to using Chromium, but it's been apt-get remove --purge'd from my system now. Back to Iceweasel!
I wish it were practical for me to cut Google out of my life. I'm a Google Apps user for email with my domain (got the grandfathered free edition long ago). I've gotten pretty used to Chrome and have started using its sync feature. I do choose the encryption option for that though. I've just been using Ghostery (and Adblock+), so hopefully that keeps me out of their analytics. I use DDG sometimes instead of google search. Lately I have flash/java set to click to play (with a whitelist for some sites).
My only annoyance with Firefox/Iceweasel is the flash player doesn't seem as good as Chrome's included one. I get a screen flicker at the beginning of when a video starts playing. Also, I like Chrome's process per tab model which I've found to more stable. I tend to have loads of tabs open at once.
