    Chromium vs Google Chrome. (Any difference at all?)

    Just wondering if anyone knows what the difference is between Google Chrome, and Chromium.

    As far as I can tell, the only difference is the colors of the logo, and the name.

    Did Google actually do anything?

    Or did they just slap their name on it?

    Not that I think its a bad thing.

    Just curious.

    no flash or pdf in chromium by default. you can install both the pdf and flash though really easily at least in arch. i actually find chromium faster.
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.

    Google's Chrome comes with Flash (and not the legacy that's in the Ubuntu repositories - Google provides newer Flash). That's the biggest difference.

    The sad thing is, I prefer Chrome because the icon is prettier
