Google If you ever needed evidence that no, people don't want a browser as an operating system, it's this: Google has updated Chrome OS to pretty much turn it into a traditional desktop operating system. This does raise the question - does anybody actually use Chrome OS?

I find these changes bringing it closer to a desktop interface interesting, considering where Motorola seems to be taking their webtop solution. If you haven't seen the videos, when docked into a lapdock, the phone running ICS goes into something more like tablet mode. Since Chrome beta runs on ICS, that would already be far better than Chrome OS for my purposes. Now I just need Motorola to hurry up with their updates to find out if I'm right.

I'm actually posting this from my Motorola phone running webtop. The current version isn't exactly ideal, to be honest. It's really just Firefox and a file manager with a windowed view of my phone.

But the potential I see in those webtop 3 beta videos... I can't wait.
