In Firefox 116 we plan to prototype FedCM in Nightly only. This is an extension to the Credential Management API to enable privacy preserving third-party authentication.

This feature is a proposed mechanism for removing the reliance on third-party cookie exceptions for authentication use cases. As of now, third party authentication relies upon the Storage Access API with uninformative prompts or heuristics that grant storage access.

Bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1803629
Specification: https://fedidcg.github.io/FedCM 
Standards Body: W3C
Platform Coverage: Desktop (Android planned)
Other browsers: Chrome 108
web-platform-tests: https://wpt.fyi/results/credential-management?q=fedcm
