@gsnedders @yoavweiss @fractorious Personally I also think permission bundles (…) can help fight permission fatigue. None of this is easy, and getting it “right” requires iterating. I see huge potential for UAs to come up with in

@gsnedders @yoavweiss @fractorious Fully agreed. IMHO we need temporary permissions (e.g., grant for a day), we need re-prompting (like iOS background geolocation reminders), and probably also ephemeral permissions (for unused [definition tbd.] apps).

@yoavweiss @gsnedders @fractorious It’s indeed a little more complex than that. We do a lot of UI research on how to word these prompts and how they can potentially be grouped (like mic & cam). A great recent example is Idle Detection (……

@KnisterPeter If in the new profile you indeed start fresh, without the potentially over the years accumulated and forgotten extension cruft, then it will help. If you have few or no extensions installed, you probably won’t notice a difference. Extensio

@gsnedders @othermaciej @Apple Congratulations, that’s great news for Safari and the Web. 👏

@WorId_Languages With less extensions installed they can. Edge have made some (I think not-upstreamed) changes to memory management, too:….

@HenrikJoreteg I reckon this isn’t a universal solution to avoid breakage, it only works when you have a 1:1 trust connection w/ the customer (I think you do).
We should make our docs clearer and set full expectations—and see if breakage can be avoide

@HenrikJoreteg As others have said, a short period of breakage is to be expected, but I agree this seems unnecessary when the API shape ultimately remains stable. For _your_ concrete situation, you can always ask your clients to flip the #​enable-exper
