You can start Ubuntu Web Browser by

$ webbrowser-app <address>
$ webbrowser-app https://mail.google.com

Press Super (Windows key) type Startup Application. enter image description here

  1. Click Add.
  2. Enter whatever you want to run at startup. For eg unity-webapps-gmail (replace firefox).
  3. Click Add & Close
  4. Next time you login it will launch gmail (or whatever you entered) automatically for you.

All unity apps. See this.

For other services, you need to enter your service address. Replace (field 2) with webbrowser-app http://mail.google.com (or any other) for Unity Web Browser to launch with.
