WebKit implements the following non-standard APIs:

- Document#onsearch
- Element#onsearch
- the `search` event

Neither Firefox nor Edge implement these.

Blink *does* implement these APIs, but the Blink maintainers are currently
investigating the impact of its removal [1]. That issue includes references
to the `incremental` attribute, but I have not seen any indication of its
existence in WebKit.

WebKit currently has at least one open bug concerning the behavior of this
feature [2].

Tests added in https://github.com/web-platform-tests/wpt/pull/19889

The test results suggest WebKit does support an incremental attribute.
