Description Barrett Harber 2016-10-12 13:49:27 PDT
All major browsers except Safari have shipped it without the prefix (see http://caniuse.com/#feat=cryptography). Is there a reason to keep the webkit prefix still?
Comment 1 Alexey Proskuryakov 2016-10-12 23:27:15 PDT
WebKit implements an early version of the WebCrypto spec, different from other browsers that added this feature later. Because of this, exposing it was crypto.subtle would be a bad idea.

What we need to do is to implement the up to date spec, and to expose that as crypto.subtle.
