Pretty exciting! Definitely seems like it would be cleaner.
Do you think this would be a new bridge mode?

I spent a couple minutes trying to find an example of how to use this, but didn't come up
with anything outside of the docs.

Looks like the relevant classes are WebMessage, WebMessagePort and WebView.
The relevant methods on WebView are createWebMessageChannel[1] and postWebMessage[2].
createWebMessageChannel returns an array of 2 WebMessagePorts.
I don't quite get how it works - how does the JS side know what port to use?
The WebMessagePort overview [3] talks about transferring a port to JS - what does that mean?

I'll come back to this later and re-read the docs.
Thanks for bringing this up, Joe!
