Interesting thoughts about snap and how it might be dangerous

Apparently Canonical is replacing the chromium package with a pointer to the chromium snap???

"as you install APT updates, Snap becomes a requirement for you to continue to use Chromium and installs itself behind your back. This breaks one of the major worries many people had when Snap was announced and a promise from its developers that it would never replace APT"

Wow. That's pretty bad...
