Bug Description

Hi,

I use multiple webapps on the desktop, but after upgrading to 16.04, I find that I cannot have multiple webapps opened at the same time. Meaning I can't open for example Feedly, Wunderlist and Wordreference at the same time. Is there a change to make inside the webapps?

Thanks!

Just tried Unity8 on the same desktop. My webapps appear in the Dash, and here it works fine, just like on the phone and tablet. Any thoughts?

To be able to execute different webapps simultaneously with webapp-container, you have to specify different APP_IDs for each webapp.

For example:
1. webapp-container --app-id=ubuntu.com https://www.ubuntu.com
2. webapp-container --app-id=wiki.ubuntu.com https://wiki.ubuntu.com

Doing so, cache files will be saved in different directories:
1. `~/.cache/ubuntu.com` `~/.local/share/ubuntu.com`
2. `~/.cache/wiki.ubuntu.com` `~/.local/share/wiki.ubuntu.com`
and webapps can run at the same time.

Changed in webapp-container:
