Not really! Chrome OS will do "Webapps" the same way as Firefox, Safari, 
Opera, and IE will do it.
What probably Chrome OS will do that the browsers don't do is "Apps" 
kinda like how there are Android Apps, and iPhone Apps.
Webapps still work on Android and iPhone right? So it will hardly be any 
different on Chrome OS.
An "App" will always have more control than a "Webapp", and a driver 
will always have more control than a "App", especially if the driver 
lives in a different privilege level.
