Chromium is the open source web browser project from which Google Chrome draws its source code. Chromium is the same as Google Chrome, but with a different-colored logo and with­out Google track­ing fea­tures installed.
Chromium is the name given to the open source project and the browser source code released and main­tained by the Chromium Project. It is pos­si­ble to install the lat­est pre­com­piled snap­shots for Win­dows, Linux and Mac, or by down­load­ing the source code and build­ing it man­u­ally on those plat­forms. Google takes this source code and adds on the Google name and logo, an auto-updater sys­tem called Google­Up­date, an opt-in option for users to send Google their usage sta­tis­tics and crash reports as well as, in some instances, RLZ-tracking which trans­mits infor­ma­tion in encoded form to Google, for exam­ple, when and where Chrome has been downloaded.
In June 2010 Google con­firmed that the RLZ track­ing token is only present in ver­sions of Chrome that are down­loaded as part of mar­ket­ing pro­mo­tions and dis­tri­b­u­tion part­ner­ships and not in ver­sions of Chrome down­loaded from the Google web­site directly or in any ver­sions of Chromium. The RLZ source code was also made open source at the same time so that devel­op­ers can con­firm what it is and how it works.
