Re. Chrome packaged apps (http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-57475180-93/new-chrome-feature-frees-web-apps-from-the-browser/), Bruce Lawson at Opera is grouching about interoperability:

http://www.brucelawson.co.uk/2011/installable-web-apps-and-interoperability/  "...they have announced their own non-standards-based proprietary Packaged Apps format. Hurray for interoperability."

https://twitter.com/brucel/status/227664158966030337 "Chrome's proprietary Packaged Apps. It's almost as if the Chrome team don't read my blog and do everything I say."

Google sent me this statement about working on standards for packaged apps: "We are working on making web apps as capable as native apps -- and this requires changes in the way we think about the runtime and the security model in place for web pages. We're discussing those changes in the W3C system applications working group so we have a unified model for web apps."
