The experimental status of indexedDB doesn't give developers confidence in using it[1], we should just mark it stable. What do you think?

We should decide what to do here, I am for it since it doesn't change much.

Me too. Irakli?
We should make it stable!

I see this is still marked experimental.

Has anything changed behind the scenes that has held it back from being marked as Stable, or has this ticket just fallen off of the radar?

It sounds like consensus.  Who owns this or the ability to make it happen?

I hate to be an annoyance here, but I'd really love to know if IndexedDB is considered stable / non-experimental yet.

It's still marked experimental here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/SDK/High-Level_APIs/indexed-db

While it may not be entirely rational of me, the resistance to finally change how it's marked on the documentation does hurt my confidence in using it.

Further, I suppose I should ask if it'll be irrelevant when WebExtensions goes to production anyway?

I would contend at this point that IndexedDB is not stable, and this ticket should be either removed, or marked as blocked by some [new? existing?] ticket to stabilize IndexedDB.
