Cloud In Cloud? Jolicloud Makes It To The Chrome Webstore
The Google Chrome Webstore was announced yesterday and new applications are being added as you read this. However one very interesting app in the webstore is Jolicloud.
Jolicloud is a cloud based operating system built upon Linux. It has been around for a while. Recently they have also launched the Jolibook. What Google is trying to do with Chrome OS is a direct competition to Jolicloud. However, they are leveraging their cloud platform to integrate Jolicloud inside Chrome (browser and OS).
Of course this is possible because of the HTML5 based user-interface that Jolicloud has – infact you can manage your Jolicloud from any HTML5 capable browser. This just makes it easier to access.
You can install the Jolicloud app in Chrome from here.
