Jolicloud is one of the most popular cloud-based netbook OS based on Linux. It has been quite popular with the masses for the lightweight and web-centric interface.
The Jolicloud team has been working on underlying changes to their web app platform to make it more faster and consume less memory. For these reasons, they have switched from the Mozilla driven Prism platform to a Chrome-based web app platform, which is similar to the Google Chrome OS.
You can now enjoy the 600+ web apps available in our App Center with a faster, low memory footprint, and HTML5 ready browsing experience.
The latest update from Jolicloud will replace the Prism web-app platform with the Chrome-based web-app platform which was rewritten by the Jolicloud team to provide the same visual experience as Prism.
The customized platform is open source and is named Nickel Chromium for fullscreen web apps, which can be downloaded from here. Another major change with the new update is that Jolicloud now fully supports HTML5, so you can watch HTML5 videos on YouTube and more.
