Chase Visa Freedom sent me one of those chipped credit cards a month after I thought about asking for it for upcoming trip to Europe on vacation.

In the UK at least, I doubt that card will be accepted. Chip and PIN payment is the only thing accepted (in person) these days - chip and signature has long been phased out. I'd be interested as to what happens if you try to use that card.

Keep in mind that happy users are silent users.

Oh STFU with that. What the heck is the point in getting feedback if all you're going to say it "screw it, most users are silent and happy"? What we KNOW is from the feedback, and it's overwhelmingly negative. Here's my feedback:

I don't like tiny icons.
I don't like black and white icons.
I don't like the reduced toolbar customizability of Australis.
I don't like the lack of a status bar.
I don't like a popup for my bookmarks by default instead of a sidebar.
And I definitaly Do Not Like tabs on top!

All of those changes were tested before major release, and major opposition to them was voiced. On every occasion, people opposing the change were told to fuck off. So I (and many others) did. Fuck you, Firefox, with your shitty UX changes.
