About

Chrome is driven by the WebKit engine as well as Google's custom written JavaScript engine. The Google-authored components of Chrome were open-sourced under the name Chromium using the BSD license.

It is one of the most widely adopted browsers globally, comparable with Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari. It follows a rapid-release schedule that sees the major version number increase rapidly, usually over the course of week, rather than over the course of years like many traditional software release schedules.
