And it spies on every moves and keys you hit, searches you make, and websites you visit.

If you say so... O_o
Even if that was true, it wouldn't really affect my choice, unless I knew that google is using my precious personal data to pursue some world domination plan and not just, you know, trying their best to show ads that might actually have a chance of being useful to me.
Until then, I'll use Chrome, because it has a simpler look and it boots up a lot faster than anything else I've tried.

google does not just use the info for ads service. they are allowed to use,give,change,multiply anything you upload to one of their services in any way.
so if you are a musician for example and upload your songs in the chrome browser to some website. then google is allowed to use your music in any way they want to. no matter if it is copyrighted or not.
you agree whit these terms when you instal the chrome browser ;)

In your musician example you upload the song THROUGH google's services, and that case is not mentioned in your quote. It talks about stuff submitted directly to them, not to someone else through them, while 10.1 includes both cases.
Further, from the page you posted, your quote goes on saying:
"Also, in some of our Services, there are terms or settings that narrow the scope of our use of the content submitted in those Services."
So that means you should check out the Chrome's specific ToS before you make up your mind. And indeed, you'll find that Chrome is one of the services that include such narrowings:
"8.4 Google acknowledges and agrees that it obtains no right, title or interest from you (or your licensors) under these Terms in or to any Content that you submit, post, transmit or display on, or through, the Services, including any intellectual property rights which subsist in that Content (whether those rights happen to be registered or not, and wherever in the world those rights may exist). Unless you have agreed otherwise in writing with Google, you agree that you are responsible for protecting and enforcing those rights and that Google has no obligation to do so on your behalf."
chrome's terms of services are here
