Wow i can imagine straight ahead that every webpage i open will take me staight to instant app which will be full of adds.

First they give us tools to keep apps permissions in check, and now they make this, that user cant actually control at all. It can download that "small app" that is out of conrol of system and its settings, and it can actually do anything.
For example I use heavy firewall on my phone to limit internet access for apps that dont need it at all, or use it only in specific time of day. I also keep in check my battery consumption, and with that type of instant app I cant control it at all. It will be impossible to monitor what data it read and write, how big package is and what it contain, what data it send etc etc...
Not to mention that overall idea is just useless... 99% of sites have mobile version SO THERE IS NO POINT of using this instant app.... you dont have eg. ebay app, just open browser, login, buy what you need to... and that all...
And in other situations? what is the point of using that stripped small app if you can have full functional app with all its features, and full control of its permission/data access
Wait a second.... what about permissions?...what about privacy? There are some apps out there i don't want to use because i don't agree with their data policies. I don't want to be forced to use them by unknowingly clicking on an instant app link.
