HTML5 Web Apps?

Fri Jul 31, 2015 3:49 am
Will the App Store let people install HTML5 Apps, like in Firefox OS.
That could enable more users(eventually) to use it because it will pad the app store with more stuff that the users want(Facebook Web App, among other things).
I imagine this could be done by having a .desktop file, that just opens the web app URL in a chromeless(no buttons) web browser.

Hi, it's a good idea in my opinion. I already use web apps (.desktop file etc as you describe) but there is an annoying issue: the task manager plasmoids treat this kind of web app as windows of the browser, so the icons are changed when the web app is launched and unified in one browser icon :-\ . If we find a way to fix this behavior, using web app in Plasma will make more sense. ^-^

I think this can already be done on Chromium for Linux.
