The Difference Between Chrome and chrome

In a forum post I find recently, a user noticed that Firefox uses chrome:// as part of its url schema which shows on the address bar especially when one is configuring an add-ons. He then ask, does it have anything to do with the Google Chrome browser?

Well, the answer is NO. This is the difference.

I a post I found on the developer website of Mozilla, it explains that their use of chrome as nothing to do with Google chrome browser, instead in a browser, the chrome is any visible aspect of a browser aside from the webpages themselves (e.g., toolbars, menu bar, tabs).
Let me make it easier for you.

Chrome when you see this which have its initial capitalized, then it refers to the Google Chrome browser.
chrome when you see this which have none of its letters capitalized, it refers to the visible areas of a browser which are not part of a webpage. Example of such visible areas are toolbars, menu bar, tabs etc.

But there is still another chrome that you should know about. It is the Chrome OS.
This one refers to the operating system developed by Google and comes packaged with the Chromebook laptop. In other words, Chrome OS is an alternative of Windows, Linux, an masOS.
