inputmode attribute is a hint to adjust software keyboard layout
(numeric, email and etc). Although this is already shipped on GeckoView,
this will be shipped at Firefox Desktop too.

Bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1205133

Link to standard:
https://html.spec.whatwg.org/dev/interaction.html#input-modalities:-the-inputmode-attribute

Platform coverage: All. But macOs doesn't have a virtual keyboard.

Preference: This is enabled/disabled via dom.forms.inputmode

Devtools support: N/A. DevTools doesn't emulate software keyboard.

Other browsers: Chrome 80+ and Safari 12.2+
