Google Google held a Chrome event today, and the rumours had suggested we might see the launch of Chrome OS today. This turned out to be nonsense, and in all honesty, the entire event didn't really deliver much in the form of new information. The Chrome Web Store has been opened, and the first Chrome OS netbooks will arrive in the middle of 2011.

Technically, passwords are stored locally, you just need an internet account to initially set up the device. It is encrypted, however, via ecryptfs.

Couple this with HTML5 api's relating to offline browsing, and local storage etc, and it becomes fair simply to envision most every task being viable using only the browser.
