A number of features or background services communicate with Google servers despite the absence of an associated Google account or compiled-in Google API keys. Furthermore, the normal build process for Chromium involves running Google's own high-level commands that invoke many scripts and utilities, some of which download and use pre-built binaries provided by Google. Even the final build output includes some pre-built binaries. Fortunately, the source code is available for everything.

ungoogled-chromium tries to fix these things.

Why not contibute to firefox ?
I mean really creating a fork of chrominum will never solve your problem.
Help a independent solution(firefox).
i have been using firefox for past 8-9 years(my first browser actually). It provides everything that a user need from browser. It follows HTML5 standards etc.

This reminds me of : http://robert.ocallahan.org/2014/08/choose-firefox-now-or-later-you...

I know there are some is issues with firefox, but these people can also work on those issues instead of creating a fork.

Otherwise it will be too late for everyone.
