Chromebook runs a fully fledged operating system with a window manager and native apps on top which also happens to run web apps. Firefox OS is made in HTML5/JavaScript from the ground up, everything in there is a web page, there isn't a single line of native code besides the (hidden) browser. Even the window manager is written in JavaScript:
