Mozilla has published a series of objections to web packaging, a content distribution scheme proposed by engineers at Google that the Firefox maker considers harmful to the web in its current form.

At its developer conference earlier this month, Google engineers talked up the tech, which consists of several related projects Signed Exchanges, the web packaging format and changes to the fetch specification that allow website resources to be packaged and cryptographically signed for redistribution by third parties. Making websites portable, Google contends, facilitates more efficient delivery, easier sharing and offline access.


The reach (over-reach?) by the tech giants continues!
