google is the company who owns www.google.com (which is the search engine which most ppl associate with google)
and it also owns chrome (which is a web browser developed by google)

by the way, a web browser is a program which lets you see the internet, much like Internet Explorer or Fire fox
Well, this questions has already been answered, but maybe I can give you a simple answer.

Google is a company that makes a search engine that is referred to as Google. A search engine is a website that allows to find other webpages by typing as keyword.

Google Chrome is a web browser made by Google. A Web Browser is a tool that lets you view other webpages, including the Google search engine.

Think of it like this.

A web browser is like a car: it lets you get to all the different places.
A search engine is like a map: it helps you find different places without knowing th address. 

The "map" (search engine) has to be viewed in the "car" (web browser).

You can get to the map by typing www.google.com, which is the address of the map.

You can also have the "map" open when you open Chrome, which is probably what used to happen.
1. Click the wrench menu, then Options.
2. Click the basics tab.
3. Under Home Page, click Open this Page and in the box next to it, type www.google.com.

Hope this is what you wanted.

For more help:

It helped a lot. I had no idea of the difference between Google and Google Chrome. Now I see that Google is a search engine and
Google Chrome is a combination web browser and search engine. I was confused because the applications I was used to with Google
are not all available with Google Chrome. But the trade off is that Google Chrome is faster and supposedly safer. So when I want to view I will use Google Chrome but when I want to print I will use Google.
so can anyone explain why my google places for www.seoagencysydney.com.au appears on google but not on google crome? when I go to chrome the basics are the there for my map but all the main catergory fields and description are missing, so I fill them in and then I have to verify again which takes me to a screen to get sent the postcard but then I see there are duplicate listings for my places -

i am wondering then , if Google made this car ( Browser ) Google Chrome ...
to read the Map....
does it veer at the sign posts along side the road upon every request to view the map , First , .... as a matter of Protocol,.... so that the rest of the passengers "Gets" who is in charge of the car ?
because the passenger who requested to find the nearest facilities ..... is not in command as is evidenced by the lack of control on the car floor and many of the other passengers who would like to ask are Astonished at the vehicle taking a decided turn off tract every time a request is made .....
