Risks



Interoperability and Compatibility

Gecko: Positive (https://github.com/mozilla/standards-positions/issues/639) Jan-Ivar Bruaroey from Mozilla, and Youenn Fablet from Apple, have both collaborated with us closely in shaping this PR. They have then approved merging this PR into w3c/mediacapture-screen-share. This is implicit support, so I'd consider it POSITIVE even though, as of the time of this writing, the official request for position has not yet been answered.

WebKit: Positive (https://lists.webkit.org/pipermail/webkit-dev/2022-May/032249.html) Jan-Ivar Bruaroey from Mozilla, and Youenn Fablet from Apple, have both collaborated with us closely in shaping this PR. They have then approved merging this PR into w3c/mediacapture-screen-share. This is implicit support, so I'd consider it POSITIVE even though, as of the time of this writing, the official request for position has not yet been answered.

Web developers: Positive Interest expressed by Google Meet.


Security

The current tab is the surface most under an attacker’s control. Nudging the user away from this risky surface is a good thing. Of course, malicious applications can avoid using this new control, or use it to retain the old behavior (current tab still offered). This is not a problem - it simply means that this new surface offers no degradation in security, although not a security feature in its own right.



WebView application risks

N/A



Debuggability

N/A



Will this feature be supported on all six Blink platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome OS, Android, and Android WebView)?

No

Supported on all platforms that support getDisplayMedia. Namely, all desktop platforms.



Is this feature fully tested by web-platform-tests?

No


Estimated milestones

No milestones specified

Similar to other intents, this doesn't count as an official positive signal. Let's wait a few days to see if one emerges.

I've set a reminder to ping this thread in one week, as suggested in the other intent thread.

When I have an exact date, I will update ChromeStatus and ping this thread with the target. Currently, I only know that it will be before EoY, but no earlier than August.
