Chromium is a free web browser developed by Google. It works on its own and makes up a large amount of the source code for the Google Chrome browser. The two browsers have always had some differences such as the lack of DRM, and the ability for other people to make browsers based off of it, as meant by their names: chromium is the metal used to make chrome plating on cars.[1]
