Internet & Networking Well, some rumblings in Chromium-land today. An attentive user found out that it looked like Chromium, the open source, un-Googled version of Chrome, was phoning home to Google during start-up. A long discussion ensued, and together with Chromium hackers, the behaviour was clarified, and traced to a regression somewhere in the code. Open source at work, people.

Actually, I seem to remember the OS being referred to by the name "Chrome" as well. I haven't checked closely yet but I wouldn't be surprised if "Chromium" is equally interchangeable between both projects as well: i.e., there's corporate and open source versions of the OS, too.
