We are going to ship the same-origin prerendering triggered by the speculation rules API and running experiments on Omnibox triggered prerendering on Android. We also enable these prerendering on Desktop.

It affects the Chrome Extensions APIs surface. Baseline changes were already discussed at the WECG for the FencedFrames/MPArch support, and we just follow it to support prerendering. Detailed plans are discussed in the design docs.
NaCl is another Desktop only feature, but we don’t support NaCl in prerendering pages as the feature NaCl is deprecated. We cancel prerendering when we find a NaCl in a prerendering page.
Does this intent deprecate or change behavior of existing APIs, such that it has potentially high risk for Android WebView-based applications?
