As a former desktop developer (KDE) I can tell you that this is nothing 
more than a few browser instances in combination with already existing 
plugins for Twitter, GMail, and friends to different existing 
Ubuntu/Gnome tools like Tracker or the HUD. The only special thing is 
that they are all installed in Ubuntu and configured properly. A 
properly configured KDE, OSX, or even Windows provides the exact same.

"Ubuntu WebApp" is just a buzzword. Nothing new to see here.
