Vivaldi Proposal; Open AR Browsing standard?

I don't see this happening until you see it in Chrome first – because at it's heart Vivaldi is just a web application running on top of something much akin to nw.js, electron or some other blink based web application wrapper. (I'd be curious which one, or is it an in-house fork?)
The "program" itself -- the menu, the tabs, the panels, the controls -- that's just a html, CSS and JS document being rendered in blink. The standalone blink "wrapper" they are using exposing the <webview>tag for use, which is kind of a jacked up on monster tires version of the <iframe>tag sitting in a nice little sandbox.<br /><br />So until blink supports it? Don't see it happening. REALLY they aren't making a browser ENGINE that would implement things like that, they are making a UI around an existing engine to add useful features to the front-end.<br /><br /><em>I'm still playing with doing this myself as I have some of my own ideas on how this should be done – one of which includes kicking react.js to the curb.</em></iframe></webview>
