DaveRo Tech: Mudcat / Edge incompatibility (33) RE: Tech: Mudcat / Edge incompatibility 06 Oct 20


Joe: so when this happens, you can't click the web page area (the 'content') but you can click the buttons of the browser (the 'chrome'*). Same with any browser?

*Chrome was the word Netscape used in the '90s to describe those parts of the display which was the browser's, not the website's. Like the frame of a picture. The saying "It's just chrome", meant it's not the important part of what you see. Google adopted Chrome as the name of their own browser, causing confusion to this day. (Paradoxically, because Chrome had very little chrome; I think it was a joke.) Firefox, derived from Netscape, still contains chrome - confusing younger users.

Chromium is the open source part of Google Chrome - the parts Google chooses to make available to all. Google Chrome is Chromium plus proprietary/secret bits - such as optimisations to Gmail which other browsers cannot use. Chromium Edge is Chromium plus Microsoft's ditto.
