An OS built on a web browser doesnít have to mean that the
applications are closed source. If you host the applications locally,
and use something like web sockets and Node.js to communicate with the
lower level stuff, you may end up with something that 1. uses web
technologies, 2. performs good, 3. is open.

Iím not sure if this is a good idea. I do think itís the most
streamlined way to do it, since youíre most likely using the web
browser anyway. There was some talk about the idea of implementing a
suckless web browser engine in the other thread thatís 100 % standards
compliant. That could make a web-based terminal application almost as
snappy as xterm if done right.
