Is ‘Google’ the universal answer for the lazy of mind?
The doc/spec for the web app manifest was started by "Marcos Caceres, Mozilla Corporation" in 2013. Worked on in parallel since then with "Mounir Lamouri, Google Inc." and plenty of others. This isn't the first time a technology was made useful without considering security. Note the several commentatoreros saying they've turned off JS in browser.
Words for cheap like 'radical', 'leftist', 'extremist', "Google is tha eevihl!" are not the height of insight, nor informative.
