Mozilla’s Webian Shell To Challenge Chrome OS?

By | June 13, 2011 | 7 Comments

With Chrome OS notebooks already shipping, Firefox has also decided to join the party with the web browser based interface called Webian Shell, which is based on Mozilla Chromeless project.

However, unlike Chrome OS, Webian Shell is not actually an “operating system”. Instead, it was written in HTML, CSS and JavaScript, and runs on top of Windows, Mac OS X or Linux.

As this is just an early and experimental release, the upcoming versions are set to incorporate more advanced features, such as: multiple home screens, split screen view, onscreen keyboard for touch based devices and more.

If you would like to try it out, here is a download link.
