I wouldn't have said that one potential user (Nathan) implying in a review that a name may cause confusion or another potential user (me) agreeing with them is the same as 'faulting' Mozilla for the arising confusion.

If you mean that Google should be faulted for it I wouldn't be in a position to judge, but I do think that if the name (Chrome) was already being used in a publicly visible way by another entity (Mozilla) - if that's what you were saying - then to choose the same one was at the very least not very sensible of Google.
