Re: [webauthn] Add support for non-modal UI (#1545)

> Interesting idea! What would prompt the browser to visit that URL though? For /.well-known/change-password, the user presumably interacts with their password manager in order to initiate that navigation. But what would the corresponding trigger be for the username-less WebAuthn login?

A good question!

My password manager (1Password) already has a button to initiate a log in, which depends on knowing the appropriate URL:
<img width="750" alt="Screen Shot 2021-01-07 at 11 09 34" src="">

That URL is based on heuristics: usually whichever page you create or first use credentials on. But I often have to fix that field by hand right now. It would be great to aim for a world where I can initiate a single authentication action and get right where I need to be.

As browsers take on more features from password managers and update their start pages to act more like app launch boards (such as the recent steps taken by Safari 14), it could make sense for them to have something similar.
