Chromium Browser Impressions

I use Chromium browser, the open source version of Google's Chrome browser. I am in version 19.x right now after update a few days ago.

Whenever I want a quick see and connect to any web site, this is the browser I go to. However, when I go to surf the wild and dark corners of the web I switch to a hardened Firefox with NoScript and Adblock. I do not have the confidence to roam these sites when I'm using Chromium. Using Chromium on some regular sites, I find random tabs and windows open with scripts. It doesn't give me confidence if a browser is unable to block these kind of random scripts.

And I have popups disabled in the settings!
