jcampbell05 has just created a new issue for https://github.com/WebBluetoothCG/web-bluetooth:

== Simplified bluetooth beacon scanning API ==
Right now the API for specify you want to scan for a beacon is very complicated. I already have a UUID in string form for an iBeacon.

It would be nice to simplify pass in this uuid and perhaps some kind of identifier to specify this is a ibeacon uuid (as opposed to a eddystone one). 

Currently thats a lot of code just to search for a beacon
