Chrome on Launchpad?

Chrome is the name of 2 different things; a web-browser which has been around for ages now and an OS which is slightly newer. Very "Zen" of them! The OS supposedly runs inside the web-browser so the 2 things; the OS and the web-browser are 1.
So, people got fed up of asking or dealing with the question "Do you mean the web-browser or the OS?" and just started called the web-browser "Chromium" instead, to avoid confusion. Unfortunately Google still call it Chrome. So the sensible Ubuntu people take Chrome (the web-browser) and rename it Chromium to fit in with the rest of the entire world outside of Google's insanity.
Does that clarify it or make it "clear as mud"?
