This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

The chrome: protocol is generally used for browser chrome in Firefox (meaning the browser's user interface as opposed to "content" - the web pages loaded into the browser). You can find some information on it in the XUL Tutorial. This terminology is much older than Google Chrome that seems to be the source of your confusion.
