Is this supposed to be similar to electron?
No. WebShell is not nw.js nor electron alternative, which is only a WebView container. It do NOT provide you an Node.js runtime. The motivation of WebShell is taking web app out of browser tab. I always use jsbin.com to startup a frontend demo but I was tired for managing it as a browser tab. Electron and nw.js let you use Node.js and frontend skill to **make** a native app when WebShell let you **bring** the web app to the native. This is the point. It should be compared with Fluid, not nw.js nor Electron.

The landing page can certainly do with a better explanation for how this works and what exactly will be the output. It seems that it has limited support for device features so I'm wondering what are the pros to using this over several other "webview-packaging-shells" like the very popular cordova
Is this an electron/nwjs clone?
Nope. See my reply before.
