Hi Konstantine,

I've just confirmed this with The Management, and the decision is official: We're shipping webapps in Trusty. We feel that with the recent landing of Oxide as the rendering engine for webapps, that the quality has increased to a useable state.

Of course there are bugs and we are working on those, not all of the fixes may make it in before the release. You might have to wait until 14.04.1 before you see webapps really achieve excellence.

If you are bothered by the presence of webapps on your system, it is possible to remove them with this command:

$ sudo apt-get purge xul-ext-unity unity-webapps-common unity-chromium-extension

This will prevent the integration prompts from bothering you and will remove all currently installed webapps. You may also want to inspect ~/.local/share/applications and delete any webapps-related .desktop files you find in there (just be careful not to delete them all as it may contain applications that you care about as well).
