Indeed, the most difficult issue here is security and the permissions UI,
which you haven't addressed at all.

Currently, when you close a browser tab, the application in that tab is
gone. This is a very important user expectation that we can't just break.

Maybe you could have a browser window containing regular tabs, but presented
differently, with just icons and titles in some sort of tray, so users can
see which applications are running "in the background"?

"He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
