Do you find the Performance panel easy / hard to use (or never use it at all)? 🤔

The Chrome DevTools team is currently working on improving the Performance panel.

@dluzar @googlechrome @excalidraw Still a misunderstanding: the exception is not per app (like Excalidraw), but per API (like File System Access). The Chrome developers of such APIs need to request an exception for their origin trial to run uninterrupted

@jaffathecake It’s currently marked as shipping in M89: bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/iss…. It’s not meant to be an infinite OT and API owners like @yoavweiss have repeatedly _very_ critically questioned when engineering asked for an OT extension. For full contegroups.google.com/a/chromium.org…

@dluzar @googlechrome @excalidraw This exception is on the API level (for example, the File System Access API that Excalidraw uses).

@jaffathecake It’s only upon request and requires approval as usual: groups.google.com/a/chromium.org…. It arose in the context of the Serial API origin trial where absolutely no fallback was possible.

Origin trials in the @googlechrome browser no longer have a required breakage period, meaning that _exceptionally_ some origin trials can launch to production without interruption 🎉.
