Chrome Chromium confusion

Granted, if you enter Chromium vs Chrome in a web search, you do get some pretty top level examples of the difference, from the color of the icons to the fact that chromium is used to make chrome plating.

There would be no benefit to Ms from including Chrome, stuffing a version of Chromium with their own extra crap may be of benefit to them.

Google adds extra video codecs and other ease of use inducements to Chrome to encourage it's use over Chromium, but then, aside from ChromeOS and Android, they have to bait for an install unless OEMS bundle it with their machines for them.

I wonder what, if any MS will offer to encourage the use of it's new frankenbrowser.
