Native Messaging - Browser implementation status report

Dear All,

Native Messaging which started its life as a "workaround"
( )
is now beginning to look close to a de-facto standard for desktop browsers.

Chrome: Shipping since late 2013
Opera: Shipping
Firefox: Currently in beta, planned for general use in V.50
Edge: In the workings according to the Microsoft Edge team
Safari: N/A and no plans have been disclosed

For mobile browsers the situation is considerably more complex since the platform vendors themselves (Apple, Google, and Samsung)  also needed something like Native Messaging to make their App-based "wallets" usable on the Web as well.  There is currently very little public information on these developments.
