This seems to be a platform-specific request, so it should start in crbug.com.

In either case, we avoid opening the front-end programmatically for the following reasons:
- It increases API surface that can be used by malicious sites / extensions
- It increases the risk of the extensions API mis-use where a regular extension (say ad block) might use powerful inspector API via opening the front-end and installing a hook into the page.

both scenarios are bad for the users.
