Hello,

In WebKit Bug 73528, I have implemented network info APIs based on W3C
initial working draft.

However, W3C adopted Mozilla's network info API proposal in the latest
editor draft:
- http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/dap/raw-file/84a2fb7b753b/network-api/index.html
 
I agree with most part of the new draft. By the way, it seems Mozilla is
implementing bandwidth based on empirical observation. Though I'm not sure
whether that is right way, it looks good to me for now. I'm going to update
existing WebKit patch based on new editor draft.

P.S. There is typo: *bandwdith*. Please fix it.

- Gyuyoung
