I don't understand the difference between Chrome and Chromium either but
it seems only Chromium is included in Ubuntu releases.

I noticed the System Monitor showing several Chromium programs for some
minutes. I assume they are collecting data about my usage, but it is
using my broadband which is quite expensive here. So I have switched to
using Firefox only until I see similar behaviour by it.

I would like your advice on this data collection in the background . 

Thanks. Chas.
