Chromium is the open-source project that forms the basis for Google Chrome. Because it’s completely open source, Chromium is available in many Linux distributions’ software repositories for easier installation.
The Chromium web browser is also available for other platforms. You could run it on Windows or Mac — in theory. Similarly, “Chromium OS” is the name of the open-source project that forms the basis of Google’s Chrome OS.
