Which Web Browser Is Named After What It Lacks?

Midori
Safari
Chrome
Firefox

Answer: Chrome

Google’s offering in the browser market, Chrome, sports a name that’s a bit of an inside joke. In web development terms, “chrome” refers to the GUI elements that surround the main view portal (where the page is actually displayed), just like the chrome of an old car is a type of detailing that surrounds elements of the car like the windows and headlights.

When Google developers had to pick a name for their browser they, tongue-in-cheek, named the browser specifically after the thing it lacked: Google Chrome has minimal browser chrome to give you back more screen real estate and minimize intrusion of the GUI into your browsing experience.
