What happens when you open a new install of browsers for the 1st time?

Interesting research from Jonathan Sampson, where he watches the network requests a browser makes the very first time you launch it on a fresh install, and otherwise do nothing. This gives you a little insight into what kind of information that browser wants to collect and disseminate.

This was all shared as tweets, but I’m linking to an unrolled thread if there’s one available:

Weekly Platform News: CSS Scroll Snap, Opera GX, PWA Install Icon

Šime posts regular content for web developers on webplatform.news.

In this week’s roundup, Chrome is adding an install option for Progressive Web Apps, Opera GX comes to Windows, the ECMAScript proposals get an update, and CSS Scroll Snap is coming to a Firefox browser near you.

An install icon is coming to Chrome on desktop

Pete LePage: The next version of Chrome will automatically show an install icon in the address bar on desktop if the site meets Chrome’s PWA “installability” criteria. You can listen for the appinstalled event to detect if the user installed your PWA.

Opera GX is available on Windows

Maciej Kocemba: The preview version of Opera GX for Windows is now available. This is a special version of Opera that lets users limit how much CPU and RAM is available to the browser.

Updated ECMAScript proposals

Azu The JavaScript optional chaining operator (obj?.prop) and null-ish coalescing operator (x ?? y) proposals have been moved to Stage 2 of the TC39 process. (See Web Platform News issue 902 for more information about the TC39 process.)

// BEFORE let text = response.settings && response.settings.headerText; if (text == null) text = "Hello, world!";  // AFTER let text = response.settings?.headerText ?? "Hello, world!";

CSS Scroll Snap is coming to Firefox

Šime Vidas: CSS Scroll Snap is supported in Chrome, Safari, and the next version of Firefox. Scroll snapping works well on touch screen devices but there are some usability issues on desktop platforms.
