1. The interface looks more simple compared to Firefox which I am used to.  Where is the menu option for add-ons and plug-ins that I can search like in Firefox?

2. How do I view the browser back and forward button histories i.e. like in IE or Firefox rather than going back one page, you can view the drop down back/forward button to move faster to a deeper previous or forward page?

3.One of the key features in Firefox which I like, is the ability to load all existing browser tab sessions when I exit Firefox.  I note that Chrome also has that ability.  Does Chrome behave any differently in this regard i.e. are there any pitfalls I should be aware of e.g. max tabs, corrupt tabs/not loading etc.  Firefox even to this day has the problem of constantly asking for the master password several times despite entering it the first time correctly.  Does Chrome have this problem?

Overall, would would anyone say that Chrome has more features and is better than Firefox?

(1) [EXTENSIONS] Option Button > Option > Tools >Extensions
(can be also accessed by typing in address bar: chrome://extensions)

[PLUGINS] Type in address bar: chrome://plugins

(4) Overall, FF is better when it comes to add-ons.
I have never found extensions for Chrome that come close to those I use in FF.
However, Chrome is much faster when you are using it without extensions.

As for (2), I have not found any extension for Chrome.
FF will have to win against Chrome for this feature.

As for (3), Chrome does not have a master password.

So it's possible if my computer gets stolen or hacked into, the passwords can be stolen from chrome?
