Steps:

1. Install a web app
2. Launch it
3. Uninstall the web app from about:apps
4. Check what Android processes are currently running

The web app process should no longer be running.

Actual:

The web app process is still running after uninstall.
How are you determining running apps?

The activity selector on a Galaxy Nexus (the double rectangle button).
Ahh. Those are recent, but not necessarily running, apps. Yes, its confusing.
That said, uninstalling should probably kill this. I think we might be able to use PackageManager.setComponentEnabledSetting to do this, but haven't looked very hard.
That shows recently launched apps. Killing an app does not remove it from that list. It is easy to demonstrate that behavior by launching an Android app and going into the Android settings -> applications and killing that Android app. It should still be listed when pressing the recent apps button.

Right, although I'm talking about the uninstall flow. If I uninstall an app, I would expect it no longer show up in the recently launched apps.
