Re: web apps and the launcher [was: webapps and the sound menu]
Okay so was messing about on the web yesterday and found out that Firefox's

I launch from the dash, I want that with Unity integration... if I'm just
randomly browsing, it shouldn't have an effect on my launcher.
On my phone so just sending basic link for checking out:
Also, I haven't done extensive testing of all apps yet. Will do so when I
have more free time and am basing this email almost exclusively on that
