What is Chromium?

Chromium is an open source web browser.

Chromium is the open source web browser project that forms the code of Google Chrome.

The open source project is designed to be one of the building blocks for the company’s popular web browser. Chromium shares most its code and features with the Google web browser Chrome, although there are some differences such as in the licensing model.

Google helped set up the project with the aim of making the browser a tabbed window manager, or shell for the web. This may be why Chromium was chosen as the name, as it relates to the metal from which chrome plating is made.
