Mac OS X Lion Copies Chrome OS Browser Mode

The upcoming Mac OS X release from Apple is set to have a browser only mode, similar to one found in Chrome OS.

According to MacRumors, Lion lock screen includes an option to “Restart to Safari”, which basically just boots an operating system with the web browser only.

Furthermore, thanks to the new auto save feature, users can continue where they left after OS is switched back to the default mode.

Mac OS X Lion is set for July release and should be available in the Mac App Store for $29.99.

    That is actually a really cool feature. I would love it if I could boot into my browser of choice. If only Windows would let me…
