- Many malicious attackers were able to take-over a user's Browser experience until they clicked on a link which caused an undesirable result for the user.
- The only way out was to shut down the browser which most users would not expect or attempt.

Summary An API that can be used to build transient user interface (UI) elements that are displayed on top of all other web app UI. These include user-interactive elements like action menus, form element suggestions, content pickers, and teaching UI. This API uses a new `popup` content attribute to enable any element to be displayed in the top layer. This is similar to the <dialog> element, but has several important differences, including light-dismiss behavior, pop-up interaction management, animation and event support, and the lack of a "modal" mode.

WebView application risks
- Does this intent deprecate or change behavior of existing APIs, such that it has potentially high risk for Android WebView-based applications?
Goals for experimentation
- Validation of the shape and ergonomics of the overall pop-up API. Feedback should include use cases that do not work well (or that do work particularly well), performance issues, etc. Ideally, use cases should include as much of the API as possible, including multiple pop-up types (auto, hint, manual), nested pop-ups, declarative and imperative pop-up invocation, etc.
- A feature has been added to devtools which shows all of the elements that are currently in the top layer, plus annotations of those elements in the Elements tree. Elements that use the pop-up API will be shown with this feature.
Will this feature be supported on all six Blink platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome OS, Android, and Android WebView)? Yes
Is this feature fully tested by web-platform-tests? Yes
Requires code in //chrome? False
