I think there is a little confusion on the definition of "Web App" in
the context of this thread. We are *not* talking about, say installing
Wordpress from the fedora repos so you can set up a wordpress instance
on your machine. Web apps in this context means that you could install a
package for "github" on your desktop, so it provides you a menu entry in
GNOME Shell, and when opened it provides a stripped down web browser
that just opens github.com. An added benefit of doing it this way is
that it behaves as a "application" in the workstation, so you can
alt-tab between other windows and "github".
