comment Stop user opening links in a new tab
This is a band-aid: it only addresses someone clicking a link to open the web app, but what of copy-pasting the URL into another tab, or using a bookmark, or clicking a link not controlled by the web app? Also, don't ever check for unique sessions by IP address: then only one person behind a NAT will be able to use it, which is not the desired behaviour.

comment Why is the drag area usually limited to the “title bar”?
I have the impression that KDE will just build a cartesian feature matrix and implement everything in it.
