Hi,

navigator.permissions.query has been Nightly-only for a few weeks. We
are going to let it ride the trains. Other parts of the spec (such as
Permissions.request) will be implemented when the spec is complete.

Summary: The Permissions API allows a web application to be aware of
the status of a given permission, to know whether it is granted,
denied or if the user will be asked whether the permission should be
granted.

Use cases: See https://docs.google.com/document/d/12xnZ_8P6rTpcGxBHiDPPCe7AUyCar-ndg8lh2KwMYkM/preview?pli=1#heading=h.yeaa13evs6re

Bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1105827

Spec: https://w3c.github.io/permissions/

Platform coverage: All platforms

Target release: Firefox 43

Other vendor implementations: Supported by Chrome (43)

Cheers,
Biru
