How does this relate to standards, is this coming to Firefox, Safari, etc?

Chrome 86 only for now I guess.

Yup, not surprised about this for now, but anybody have an idea of where this might fit into the broader browser plans? I've seen this talked about, but only in the Chrome context.

I would expect no sane browser manufacturer to follow suit. Right now I can envision thousands of security admins having a complete meltdown over this and scrambling to remove Chrome from their networks ASAP. In a business environment this 'feature' is toxic.

It's part of the project Fugu, you can probably ping Thomas Steiner about it.

I'll be interested to know the answer, so far my understanding was that it was a Chrome initiative.

This article on web.dev sums up the usage and status.
