The title of a web page is displayed in two places: the system's title bar and the browser's tab bar. By default, Chromium installations on Ubuntu and most other Linux distributions show both the title bar and the tab bar, while Google Chrome only displays the tab bar. If you're looking to save some screen space, it's possible to configure Chromium to only display the tab bar, just like Google Chrome.
