Chrome goggles were goggles that players received for playing RuneScape on either the Google Chrome browser or the Chromium browser. Players that did not use either of these browsers could receive the item by downloading one of the browsers and using it to play RuneScape once. The goggles were placed in the player's bank when they entered the game. Chrome goggles can be stored in a Toy box in the player's house.
They were only available for a month after release.
The goggles give no stat boosts and are used purely for aesthetics. An emote exists for them: right-clicking the goggles while equipped will display the emote option. In the emote, the goggles project a cyan portal out of which tentacles of a monster appear and grab the player. The player breaks free, and the portal with the tentacles then disappears.
The emote has a 15 second cooldown period, with a reminder, saying: "Please wait a while before using this emote again". After 15 seconds the player receives a message: "You may now use your chrome goggles emote again".

- It was also possible to obtain these using a modified version of Google Chrome, such as Rockmelt.

- Chrome goggles used to have a glitch when you wear them with the 'Dragon variant' hairstyle. This was later fixed.
