Google[2] Chrome is a web browser developed by Google, one of the world’s leading technology[1] companies. It was first introduced in 2008 and has since become a dominant player in the browser market. Chrome is known for its speed and efficiency, which comes from its use of open-source code from the Chromium project. It also features a simple, user-friendly interface, highlighted by a combined address and search bar known as the omnibox. Chrome supports a wide range of web standards, including HTML5, and it provides strong security[3] features, including phishing and malware[4] protection. It also allows for extensive customization through browser extensions and themes. Despite its widespread use, it has faced some privacy[5] concerns due to its tracking mechanisms.

Most of Chrome's source code comes from Google's free and open-source software project Chromium, but Chrome is licensed as proprietary freeware. WebKit was the original rendering engine, but Google eventually forked it to create the Blink engine; all Chrome variants except iOS used Blink as of 2017.

As of October 2022, StatCounter estimates that Chrome has a 67% worldwide browser market share (after peaking at 72.38% in November 2018) on personal computers (PC), is most used on tablets (having surpassed Safari), and is also dominant on smartphones. With a market share of 65% across all platforms combined, Chrome is the most used web browser in the world today.

Google Chief Executive Eric Schmidt was previously involved in the "browser wars", a part of U.S. corporate history, and opposed the expansion of the company into such a new area. However, Google co-founders Sergey Brin e Larry Page spearheaded a software demonstration that pushed Schmidt into making Chrome a core business priority, which resulted in commercial success. Because of the proliferation of Chrome, Google has expanded the "Chrome" brand name to other products. These include not just ChromeOS but also Chromecast, Chromebook, Chromebit, Chromebox, and Chromebase.
