Firefox got a lot of love reagrding integration, it uses KDE filepicker by 
default, and it integrates
really nice with knotify and the notification system with the plasma-notify 
extensions which is also
installed by default. What more do you need for good integration besides that?

And please, don't make Chromium the default. It is still missing a lot of 
useful extensions
which are available for Firefox, it is still under heavy development and a mess 
to package
correctly, it needs huge and aggressive patches to use the system libraries 
which need
to be rediffed often. It is fast and has some nice features that Firefox hasn't,
but please don't make it the default.
