Did Apple Borrow from Chrome OS? And Why is This a Good Idea?

"MacRumors was digging through the latest developer beta of Mac OS X Lion when it found a rather intriguing new option -- if you choose "Restart to Safari" on the user lock screen, the computer will reboot into a mode which consists entirely of the web browser."

I keep my laptop on lockdown pretty much anytime I'm away from it, so I'm not so sure I like this. It also sounds like kind of a pain to get to a web browser, going through shutdown and restart. Just set up a guest account with no permissions if you want to let others use your computer. Or am I missing some reason this is a good idea? What are your thoughts?
