This is great news (via Ajaxian):

The final change we’re announcing today takes the form of widening of the goal of the Chromeless project, that is specifically, we now want to Make it possible to build desktop applications with Web technologies. This change emphasizes two things: first we’re interested in ultimately building Chromeless into something that can be used to ship real products. Second, we want it to be possible to build standalone desktop applications in addition to browsers.
It jibes with what I wrote in my post on Chrome OS:
Chrome OS aggressively drives innovation in the web technology space and I hope this innovation will make it to all desktop and mobile operating systems. [...] I would love web apps to become first-class citizens on all operating systems.
