Description Chris Dumez 2016-03-02 20:22:14 PST
Drop [TreatNullAs=EmptyString] from URL interface attributes to match the specification:

Firefox and Chrome both already follow the specification and convert null to the "null" string.

This seems like the kind of behavior that WebKit-specific content that has never been used with another web engine might rely on. Eventually it will become too risky to make this kind of change unless we have a lot of time to test things like iOS apps before Apple puts out a release with the change in it.
