Since then we have regressed a bit when enabling cool new web features. :) Currently we have 12 offenders, listed below. Most likely, the category: experimental line should be removed from these features.

For these two, we now have them on by default because we think they are ready to ship. They still exist as experimental features so that people can turn them off for regression testing, but is the policy now to move them back to Debug features at this stage?
