Hi Dave,

Thanks for these two links.

I find both arguments very compelling. And I have to say that after having originally been very much in favour of Web Packaging as a standard I have come around to Mozilla’s position. Web Packages look like a vehicle for furthering the power and hold that aggregators like Google have over the web and the damage that would cause is very likely to far outweigh the potential benefits.
