Currently, ext.webRequest.onBeforeRequest uses Chrome's request types. However, in webrequest.js we convert them into into Adblock Plus request types. This could be simplified if we map elements directly to Adblock Plus requests tyes on Safari, and just convert the requests type in the implementation for Chrome.

What to change

Make ext.webRequest.onBeforeRequest use Adblock Plus request types (e.g. SUBDOCUMENT instead sub_frame and IMAGE instead image).

Hints for testers

This change effects request blocking, in particular filters limited to a given request type.
