Google Chrome

A cross-platform web browser created by Google is called Chrome. It was created using open-source technologies from Mozilla Firefox and Apple WebKit, and it was first made available in 2008 for Microsoft Windows. Versions were eventually produced for Android, which is the default browser, along with Linux, macOS, iOS, and these platforms. The browser also makes up the bulk of ChromeOS, which uses it to host web apps.

Although Chrome is licensed as private freeware, the majority of its source code is derived from Google’s free and open-source software project Chromium. The original rendering engine was WebKit, but Google later forked it to create the Blink engine, which is now used by all Chrome versions aside from iOS.
