Apple announced they support of the W3C payment request API in Safari. It uses Ripple’s Interledger:  

AWESOME!!! I’ve been dying to buy XRP under 0.20 cents and this will get us there for sure. 

Something that should be made clear to readers: the payment request API has NOTHING (directly) to do with ILP, Ripple, or XRP. It's simply a way for websites to request data from clients via the brows

Does anyone who's technically savvy mind telling me why this isn't a big deal? Cause otherwise I'm going to assume this is huge. 

(really what I'm getting at is, will they be using interledger to access other payment schemes, like bank to bank, domestic transfers, etc? Or is interledger strictly digital asset based)

Some context for those of you out there who might be interested in how long this stuff takes. 

An article from August of 2016. One could assume they were discussing it long before this article was written. Of course, we know what assuming does... ;)

The technical side is over my head.  But this has some good info on how it would be used.

Interledger is becoming the global standard for payment interoperability. The best/cheapest source for liquidity using interledger is XRP. Unless all regulators globally prevent XRP from being used for cross-border Payment liquidity (seems unlikely), it will be used. You can have a domestic internet of value without XRP.

Right, but does it connect fiat to fiat or only digital assets?
