Google Chrome Shares Windows PKI with IE

This section describes how Chrome, Internet Explorer (IE) and Windows are sharing PKI functionalities together in storing and managing root CA certificates and server certificates.

By reading the warning message when deleting a trusted root CA certificate, we can probably guess that Google Chrome is sharing the Windows system built-in PKI functionalities, in the same way as Internet Explorer (IE).

So we can assume the following based on what we learned from IE tutorials:
