If I parse xml files using XMLSerializer I would like to have this method on any Element, because I very often search for elements identified by attributes. Reproducible: Always
You can already use document.querySelectorAll('[attr="value"]') and document.querySelectorAll('[attr]'). We really shouldn't expose proprietary extensions if there is a standardized alternative.
