"It might not be wrong to say that Webian Shell could have been
inspired by Google's Chrome OS. However, the two are quite
different right now.
"Yes, there are similarities between the two in that both gives
more priorities to the web by having a web browser for a desktop.
But while Chrome OS is a complete operating system, Webian Shell is
not. The Webian Shell runs on top of an existing operating system.
Webian Shell cannot even control the hardware right now - it cannot
control the system volume, network connections, show the battery
indicator etc. Although hardware control is planned for a future
release of Webian Shell, there is no plan of it becoming a
full-blown operating system right now."
