I've played with both and never really noticed a difference. As I've never managed to wear out or break either kind (I'm not a heavy metal drummer!) I can't say which lasts longer.
I have two pedals with straps and I've only had one strap break on me ever. I find chain drives too stiff and I vastly prefer the feel and responsiveness of a strap pedal.
