Summary

Remove the Document.getOverrideStyle() method.


Motivation

It always return null, and has done so since it was added to KHTML in 2001:

http://quickgit.kde.org/?p=kdelibs.git&a=commit&h=df31ff4de36a9b48ce849547da3a543614c8e393


Compatibility Risk

Virtually none. It's not implemented by Firefox or IE, and usage is as low as it gets.


Alternative implementation suggestion for web developers

There's no functionality to replace.


Usage information from UseCounter

https://www.chromestatus.com/metrics/feature/timeline/popularity/602


This counter reached stable with M41, but is firmly at 0%.


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

None.


Requesting approval to remove too?

Yes.
