Google Chrome's new logo

Google Chrome is a web browser developed by Google that uses the WebKit layout engine and application framework. It was first released as a beta version for Microsoft Windows on September 2 2008, and the public stable release was on December 11 2008. The name is derived from the graphical user interface frame, or "chrome", of web browsers.

In September 2008, Google released a large portion of Chrome's source code, including its V8 JavaScript engine, as an open source project entitled Chromium. This move enabled third-party developers to study the underlying source code and help port the browser to Mac OS X and Linux.
