Chromium and Firefox have shouldShowPlaceHolderWhenFocused==true behavior
in all platforms.
Web authors can specify shouldShowPlaceHolderWhenFocused==false behavior
with CSS if the default is shouldShowPlaceHolderWhenFocused==true, but they
can't specify shouldShowPlaceHolderWhenFocused==true behavior if the
default is shouldShowPlaceHolderWhenFocused==false.
