I’d like to request WebKit’s official position on scheduler.postTask(), an
API for scheduling and controlling prioritized tasks. It is specified in
 and further described in . We’ve presented the API a few times to
the WebPerf WG. One concern raised there by rniwa was the risk of priority
inversions, which we’ve explored in .
We recently finished running an Origin Trial in Chrome. Airbnb, who we’ve
been working closely with, experimented with using the API to improve their
site’s performance, which they wrote about recently .
