The history of how the browser got its famous name became known.
The name Chrome first sounded as a code name for the project, while the browser was in the early stages of creation in the late 2000s. By design, it should refer the user to some phenomena. So, to the chrome, heavy-duty, fast muscle cars of the last century: Google Chrome was considered as a similar product – stylish and modern. In addition, the word Chrome ironically pokes fun at the design principles of browsers.
Among the main differences between Google Chrome and many other browsers is a rather minimalistic interface. The creators deliberately abandoned the bright visual design so that nothing distracts the user from Internet surfing. In fact, there is almost no “Chrome” in the browser called Chrome – such an irony.
