Description

Chrome guys proposed that fullscreen should be allowed inside an orientation change event (see URL). The plan is not to make orientation change a user gesture (like click/keypress), but is to add an exception that fullscreen request can be called inside orientation change event.

I think this is fine, as far as orientation change is only on mobile, and mobile doesn't require fullscreen permission since long ago, and doesn't have the big concern around phishing.

But I still want to hear from the security team first. dveditz, do you have any concern here?

I don't see any problem with this.

(fwiw desktop doesn't have the permission request anymore either.)

I'm marking this as backlog but feel free to change the notation here if you're going to work on it sooner or if it's urgent, Xidorn. Thanks.
