I think hamburger menu is frowned on but I'm not sure what the actual name is, but if you click the menu button in the top right of the browser you'll see an Apps link (you might have to click customize first).

Please remove the Apps link from the menu completely.  See bug 1031019 for the patch that added it.  Thanks.

This doesn't remove the icon from Toolbar.png and friends, I'll file a separate bug on that :/

Attached patch patch for auroraSplinter Review
This is without the string removal and without the BrowserOpenApps removal in case anyone still calls that function.
