Although Javacript/ECMAScript is a prevalent (and sometimes overused)
in web development, my experience with Web based OS has been less
than stellar. It boils down handling the nuances of each browser to have
a consistent behavior.  The only one that has "kind of" success is
JoliCloud, because it is basically a fancy bookmark interface for
web applications.  There are plenty individual web applications
that are successful. Do they use the same API? doubt it.

Without a consistent execution, it would be unreliable to use.

My 2 cents...
