Glossary » chrome


a visual style for user interfaces that presents widgets as beveled 3-dimensional objects, usually with a gray, metallic appearance. In this style, buttons are presented as raised rectangles, text-entry fields and other content areas usually appear in beveled insets, and bumps and parallel ridges are often used to indicate that something is draggable.

Also, the “chrome” of an interface refers to the area of the interface taken up by controls, as opposed to the content area of the interface.
