I was wondering if the web app technology would be back ported to 12.04? I didn't know if this is where I would ask this question but I thought I would ask anyway.

I am unsure whether it will be officially back-ported in a point release but the preview PPA has support for 12.04 already. On your system, just run sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webapps/preview then sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install unity-webapps-preview

When I tried this with 12.04 64bit I hit a bucket load of errors. Which, I felt, was a shame. – Matthew Brown Nov 17 '13 at 2:44
