+1 to this. I have an askfedora webapp here, but when I already have 100
or so tabs in a firefox browser window, I'd rather just open askfedora
there instead of a separate "web app" window. It isn't more accessible
or convenient. I'm not sure I'm on board the "each web app in a
different window" system for the time being - it seems to require more
effort than simply switching tabs in my already always open browser
