CEF Python is a BSD-licensed open source project founded by Czarek Tomczak (hire me! download my resume) in 2012 and is based on Google Chromium and the CEF Framework projects. The Chromium project focuses mainly on Google Chrome application development, while CEF focuses on facilitating embedded browser use cases in third-party applications. Lots of applications use CEF control, there are more than 100 million CEF instances installed around the world. Examples of embedding Chrome browser are available for many popular GUI toolkits including: wxPython, PyGTK, PyQt, PySide, Kivy, Panda3D and PyGame/PyOpenGL.
See the Support development section for a list of all the individuals and companies supporting CEF Python.
