Great work so far, submitted 2 sites.
But you're right that the site will be hard to browse once there's a lot of apps, so I'm planning better navigation and filtering features (for example, sort by most used).
I'm now talking with the PHPFog guys to add resources to the server, but it's taking some time…
The lesson here: never EVER run WordPress without caching. Triple check that's it's active before you do anything.
I thought my WordPress install was ready to go, but for some reason the caching plugin was not activated.
Oh well, you can't win them all I guess…
The web really needs the equivalent of an app store. Search engines don't do apps justice. They don't have enough content to index and are often difficult to crawl anyway, being JS-heavy. Chrome Web Store is a good start, but a place with reviews and ratings of browser-independent, no-install, interactive websites would be excellent.
The tough part of your vision is the store. Every web app has their own way of processing payments that would be tough to tie into a single site for an experience similar to Apple's App Store. Chrome Web Store would probably be best positioned to tackle this.
Anyway, the permissions question is independent of the store mechanism. iOS apps ask for permissions on demand, Android apps don't.
My main point about no-install is simply that they're regular websites, not downloadable packaged apps. There's room for both, but right now there's no good mechanism to find regular websites with apps on them.
There are so many great sites/services out there that because I've forgotten about them. Having a simple index of sites like this will keep my memory about useful sites and help me discover new ones.
I really hope you are able to grow this site - i've added it to my Chrome bookmark bar!
I don't think I've ever actually used the stripe generator, but there should definitely be at least one favicon site on there.

IE's gradient builder, I find it nicer than the colorzilla one.
