APIs that could move into ES

Not really in any particular order. Some are more logical than others.

  • TextDecoder / TextEncoder
  • URL
  • fetch() (unclear yet how we are going to namespace this, CORS behavior also does not make much sense outside browser context)
  • Worker / SharedWorker (and all the port business, structured cloning is on its way already; would require events to be ported too)
  • window.btoa() / window.atob()
  • window.setTimeout(), …
  • ImageBitmap
  • EventSource
  • WebSocket
  • Web Crypto https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=26178
