In French, it is chaise longue (long chair) but Americans altered it to chaise lounge because the user was expected to lounge in it. Basically, the chaise lounger is an elongated chair resembling a couch except for two things - first, the back support portion of the lounge slants toward the back, thus, making for a reclined position with the feet fully elongated possible; and second; the armrests may or may not be present in the chaise lounge.
Compared to indoor chaise lounges, outdoor lounges are generally cheaper and are not upholstered. They might also get less use than an indoor one, as most people seem to spend the bulk of their time indoors, watching television. Whereas upholstered lounges are strictly a luxury item in most cases, outdoor chaises may actually be a beneficial item that get people to spend more time outdoors. This makes them a better purchase for most people than a normal chaise would be.
What the extension of the chaise recline to accommodate the legs does is to make it the ultimate lounge for relaxation. Seeing that the typical chaise lounge will tend to be very highly upholstered, lying on top it (in a situation where your whole body is on top of it) creates a feeling that you are no longer subject to gravity. You are just hanging up there, and it is an extremely exhilarating experience. And because of all this, many people who get to a feel of the chaise lounge experience desire to have such lounges for use in their own houses.
