While the names are similar - Chrome and Chromium - the labels represent two different web browsers. But they are related.One leads to the other. One is open-source, the other is not, not really. One dominates the world's browser landscape, like a single huskie dominates a team of Chihuahuas on the Iditarod. The other is used by less than one-sixth of one percent of all those who ran a browser last month.Computerworld put Chrome and Chromium under the magnifying glass to better understand what Chromium does and how it figures into the development of its offspring. Here's what you need to know to better understand them both.What is the Chromium browser?Chromium is not only the name of a browser, but also of the open-source project that generates the source code used by Chrome.

But don't let that stop you from reading on for our full review of the XOOM and - perhaps more importantly - Android 3.0!At a Glance They say specs aren't everything, but … [Read more...] about Motorola XOOM + Android 3.0 Review: Sweet As Honey
