Chrome is renewing work toward a Bluetooth API for websites to communicate
with devices. We have started work reviewing existing APIs, use cases, and
security concerns.

[1] has a start of that work focusing on minimizing the device attack
surface exposed to malicious websites, possibly by removing access to some
existing Bluetooth features that are hard to implement securely. We'd also
like the API to support a user interface to select and approve access to
devices as opposed to using certification and installation.

We have proposed a Community Group [2] to incubate this specification, and
are soliciting supporters!
