Chromebook - Offline Use

One of the biggest drawbacks in using a Chromebook is that you need to mostly be online to use all the functions that are available. This is slowly changing though. With Google Drive working offline and now ability to edit videos and watch full movies offline, more and more is being made available offline. I personally do not mind having to be online to use all the functionality of a Chromebook. I spend most of my time online anyway and since I have a hotspot on my iPhone, I am usually not without internet access. It's good though that more and more is being made available offline. I wonder how this will affect security though? Not having most of the applications on the computer, but in the cloud has made Chrome OS one of the most secures systems on the market. Lets see if that might be changing as the result of more features being available offline.

What do you think?
