might also be web compatible, but then Edge has to take a risk in 
removing their `navigator.getUserMedia`.

`navigator.getUserMedia`, but it's only now that it's clear that you 
really don't want this in Firefox.

If `navigator.getUserMedia` reaches Chrome stable I think it's a done 
deal, it'll never go away. So, you get all the implementors together
