Details

It would be nice to have an automated regression test on each platform that launches the browser, scans the browser processes' memory pages and looks for any errant pages that are both writable and executable. Possible methods include:

* Linux: reading /proc/$PID/maps
* macOS: mach_vm_region()
* Window: VirtualQuery()/VirtualQueryEx()
Priority: -- → P5
