After playing around (as in forgot to install chromium-addon for integration and losing half a day to find that out) with unity-webapps I finally got them to work.

Problem is, if I access a web app from the starter panel, they show the standard Chromium tab bar:problem. I cannot open a new tab and if I close the tab the whole window will close (fine so far).

So I was wondering if there is a way of removing the tabbar from Webapps or configure them so that they will open in firefox (where I could hide the tabbar in options). I however don't want to use firefox as my standard browser.

Any tips?

Cheers in advance!

If you create the Webapp from within Chromium, you'll effectively have what you want.

Go to Menu/Wrench>Tools>Create Web apps and shortcuts In Chromium/Chrome. No extensions, not anything extra installed.
