(In reply to comment #16)
> Early this year Chrome for iOS migrated from UIWebView to WKWebView.
> WKWebView gave us a huge improvement in stability, but inability to use
> custom network protocols made impossible to support the following features:
> Privacy
>  - Block 3rd party cookies
>  - Do Not Track
>  - Non-ephemeral Incognito browsing (so users are not logged out if they
> background the app and the app is killed in the background.)
> Security
>  - HSTS preloads
>  - Public key pinning
>  - Safe browsing
>  - SHA-1 deprecation warning
> Other features
>  - Data Saver
>  - Downloads if authentication is required (no access to cookies)
>  - Multiple profiles support
>  - QUIC network protocol
>  - WebP image format
