Description

20 days ago
Currently I can query to find out details about a contextualIdentity, but I can't tell when they change in a webExtension. In my extension I list all the tabs and show the colour of a container. However if a user goes to "Manage containers" and changes the colour from yellow to orange... the WebExtension won't know without querying again.

The standard way to do this is some events like:

contextualIdentities.onCreated
contextualIdentities.onChanged
contextualIdentities.onRemoved

The extension can then addListeners if they'd like to find out when they change.
