It is also the most popular browser for smartphones, and combined across all platforms at about 45%. Its success has led to Google expanding the ‘Chrome’ brand name on various other products such as the Chromecast.
Google releases the majority of Chrome’s source code as an open-source project Chromium. A notable component that is not open source is their version of the built-in Adobe Flash Player, called Pepper Flash Player.
The release announcement was originally scheduled for September 3, 2008, and a comic by Scott McCloud was to be sent to journalists and bloggers explaining the features within the new browser. Copies intended for Europe were shipped early and German blogger Philipp Lenssen of Google Blogoscoped made a scanned copy of the 38-page comic available on his website after receiving it on September 1, 2008. Google subsequently made the comic available on Google Books and mentioned it on their official blog along with an explanation for the early release. The product was allegedly named “Chrome” because Google wanted to minimize the chrome of the browser,though this meaning was added somewhat post-hoc, the ‘codename’ before release apparently chosen from a connotation of speed (and most simply as a derivative of ‘Chromium’).
