Chrome seems so much faster for some sites because Google did an amazing job on their Javascript engine. Run some benchmarks between it and your favorite browser, and you'll be amazed.

(Run them on your current browser first, and then on Chrome)

You can expect Firefox to catch up fairly quickly seeing how they're both open source and all.
