If I don't care about the component, the quickest / safest way to remove it is to cut the pins, remove the chip body, then quickly remove the pins from the board and clean up the pads with desoldering braid. That gets the component out fast, and minimizes the risk of damaging the PCB. Of course, it means the component is toast. I can usually get through hole components out in one piece with desoldering braid too, but it takes a long time, and you put a lot of heat into both the component and the PCB.
