Linux Mint is working on a new tool called Web App Manager

Another nice aspect to these web apps is that they’re created with their own browser profile and appear in their own window. Not only does this give users help to separate their general browsing from their web app browsing but it also makes switching between apps on the Alt-tab selector a bit easier.
