Summary

Remove the global webkitURL constructor in workers


Motivation

It's prefixed and unused.


Compatibility Risk

Only WebKit-specific content could break, but given the usage there's practically no risk.


Alternative implementation suggestion for web developers

Use URL.


Usage information from UseCounter

https://www.chromestatus.com/metrics/feature/timeline/popularity/284


UseCounter.h says it started working in M37, and it's consistently been at zero.


Note that webkitURL is on Window as well, but that will take some more finesse:

Entry on chromestatus.com, crbug.com, or MDN

None.


Requesting approval to remove too?

Yes.
