Description (last modified by sebastian)


The $ping option was removed because <a ping> functionality is still hidden behind a pref in Firefox, so requests of this type are an edge case.

However, by now navigator.sendBeacon() method was introduced which is essentially a generalization of the concept and is enabled by default.

Moreover, Chrome supports <a ping> by default. Starting with Chrome 49, requests caused by <a ping> and navigator.sendBeacon() will be reported through the chrome.webRequest API using the type ping.

What to change

Add $ping type option back and map TYPE_PING and TYPE_BEACON to it.
