User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; rv:42.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/42.0 Steps to reproduce: Looked for chrome.pageCapture on http://arewewebextensionsyet.com/ and on the WebExtensions bug list (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?component=WebExtensions&product=Toolkit&bug_status=__open__). Actual results: chrome.pageCapture is missing from the above API list, and there was no bug reported for it. Expected results: chrome.pageCapture (https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/pageCapture) should be implemented as part of WebExtensions.
Noted that it seems to be not used very much: https://github.com/andymckay/arewewebextensionsyet.com/blob/master/usage.csv#L218, will add to some dashboards.

I've got people pinging me about this because some open source security tools, like Hunchly (https://www.hunch.ly/ ), use it and it would be nice if these tolls weren't Chrome only due to lack of support.
What would it take to get this added, Any?

It looks like Hunchly is proprietary and not open source. Using the tool is restricted to people who have bought a license.
You're right. It is still a useful API and lack of it is keeping folks on Chrome.
If a contributor was able to land some patches, we'd accept them. But unfortunately its too low down on our priority list for a while. It's in our backlog until then.
