Lightbulb Hey Microsoft, let us make WebApps!

So I was fiddling with the "Pin to quickplay" feature for website favorites. The website's favicon would appear just like an album on quickplay, but with the address on the bottom.

So I was thinking, hey, how about, let us create webapps with favorites? Just like in quickplay - the favicon would appear in the "Apps" category. The website's <title> tag would be the title of the application. The description would be the <meta type="description" content="...">. The address bar/options bar at the bottom would be removed. It would just be a browser with no real options, like Mozilla Prism.

Don't have an email app? Mark Gmail Mobile as a webapp and be good to go. Actively visit Engadget or other technology blogs? Mark them as webapps. Prefer mobile twitter better than the app? Mark it as a webapp. I think it's a brilliant idea, and would provide padding for the lack of applications that everyone is complaining about.
