I think it's entirely possible that many of those chrome users still don't know what a browser is. They think they're using a supercharged version of google. And, after all, google = the internet.
I once told someone I did not use Windows, and she said "do you use Word instead", so its quite possible. That said, a good many people I know do now understand the difference.
The most annoying things to me about computer ignorance is PC = Windows and Mac is totally different. Given that:
1) Strictly speaking both have always been PCs (Personal Computers). The term pre-dates IBM compatibles PCs.
2) Modern Macs have the same hardware as a PC. The most significant difference is EFI vs BIOS, but if that means they are not PC, neither are machines running Windows 8).
3) Some of us do not run Windows on our PCs.
