I agree that the idea of a "Browser-based OS" is a little excessive, but a "Browser-based Mashup Stack" seems to make lots of sense.

To a degree, we already have primitive stack capabilities in our browsers (HTTP, HTTPS, HTML, CSS, etc.). What's needed is the ability to access, integrate, sequence, manipulate, and display content *across* a variety of other sources (things outside the scope of today's browser, which focuses on a "single document/website" per-view).

Support for other protocols is part of the story; data storage/persistence is another; Things like Google Gears attack parts of this problem but the most successful approach will likely need to integrate other "stack" capabilities as well.
