Indeed, the most difficult issue here is security and the permissions UI,
which you haven't addressed at all.

Currently, when you close a browser tab, the application in that tab is
gone. This is a very important user expectation that we can't just break.

Maybe you could have a browser window containing regular tabs, but presented
differently, with just icons and titles in some sort of tray, so users can
see which applications are running "in the background"?
