The Chromium is one of the best open source project (browser project) which aims at creating a faster, stable and more safer means for the online users to access the web. Basically, this site has got architecture overviews, design documents, test information and various other elements from which user can learn to create and use the given source code of the Chromium. The tool gets its name from the element Chromium, which the metal form from which chrome plating is created.
This Chromium project gets its name from the strong element called chromium. The metal is often used for designing and creating Chromium plates. The intention of Google as per the details given in the developer’s document was that the final name of the open source project would be Chromium. The final product would be termed as Chrome. But the developers took the Chromium coding and they released the version as Chromium.
The major aim of the Chromium project was to make Chromium a web shell or a tabbed window manager against the basic aim of being a traditional browser application. This application is constructed in such a way that it has got minimum user interface. As per the developers, the Chromium tool has to be lightweight (i.e. it has to be physically and cognitive) and quite fast.
There is a great amount of difference between Chromium and Google Chrome. The Chromium is nothing but a name which is given to the open source project. It is a simple browser source code which is maintained and released by the Chromium Project. User can easily download the source code of this Chromium and create as well as design various platforms. For creating Chrome from the Chromium, Google uses the given sources codes and variable of Chromium Project.
Now a restriction that just disable the extensions are not present in the Chrome Web Store (this is applicable for all the Windows users of the Chrome channels). Frankly, by default, Chromium supports the Theora, Vorbis, WebM codecs for the HTML video and audio tags. However, Google Chrome supports such things and even the patent-encumbered MP3 codecs and AAC. As on December 2013, it is stated that the Chrome can still support the H.264 Linux distributions, which is the main distributors of the Chromium.
