Apple finally exposed their thoughts about Web Components.

+JP Sugarbroad "I am seeing these suggestions for the first time." - yeah, no kidding --> for the last 3 years the Working Group has endlessly sought Apple's participation - your comment is far beyond an ironic understatement at this point.

As for the 'meat' of their nits:

Closed Mode - this should not be the default, it is harmful to hackability of your average, everyday component. In our vast experience with developers using WCs, almost never do developers need or desire to completely block others from manipulating their component content/styles. Apple favors a closed default that makes up probably 5% of use-cases - that's ridiculous. (but then again, they prefer everything to be close by default - a "philosophical difference" indeed)

Sync Mode - If perf suffers, this is not a good move, but I'm willing to suspend disbelief to see how they can pull off tokenization and JS engine warm up to register definitions without incurring a significant hit to load time.

No nested Shadow Roots - I actually agree with this one.

The fact is this: Apple has been content to let their web platform position languish because they love walled garden, native ecosystems they control from top to bottom. With Microsoft introducing Spartan and committing to open web innovation, Safari is solidly the new IE. Apple has little reason to give even fractional shits as long as they can control users with closed systems.

Strand: A new Web Components library built on top of +Polymer.
Strand: a UI Web Components Library. Strand is a growing library of common UI widgets built as web components. Strand components are cohesive in look and feel and designed to be interoperable. We've built Strand atop Google's Polymer framework.

1am in Europe/Amsterdam and really like the video. First one on 0.8. Nice. We want to use this in production just after the summer. "The experiment is over" indeed. Looking forward meeting you guys at IO2015 :)

Polymer 0.8 is starting to roll out, check their new docs and start experimenting 
Polymer is a library that uses the latest web technologies to let you create custom HTML elements. Build anything from a button to a complete application as an encapsulated, reusable element that works across desktop and mobile.

Github status shows everything is operational.  Perhaps it's the integration with their API that's causing the limiting.

Why invest in Web Components?

We interviewed +Michael Bleigh , the creator of http://ele.io, http://builtwithpolymer.org, to answer it!

Now I know what my laptop fan sounds like, never have heard it before. I guess it would be pretty much 'awesome' for my laptop's battery as well.

As soon as I've time, I'll dive deeper into experiencing React and Web Components. Web Components are (as of today) a bit too slow when shipping with a hybrid app on mobile devices without native support for Custom Elements and Shadow DOM.

It would be nice to see a reliable way for integrating React for the speed, Web Components for the encapsulation/modularisation and AngularJS for the structure of a modern WebApp.
