7 Best and Interesting Web operating System Applications


Web OS is a Web platform where a virtual Desktop interacts with the user through a web browser and does not depend on any particular local operating system.

Wikipedia also specifies that:

“A web desktop or webtop is a network application system for integrating web applications into a web-based workspace. It is a virtual desktop on the Web, running in a web browser as software. Web desktops offer the same environments like Windows, Mac, or Linux but provide more extra functionality based on the internet. Typical benefits include saving work and settings over the internet rather than to the local desktop.”
