Risks?  With browser plugins?  Nah, can't imagine that being a problem!

I'm being facetious, of course, because "browser plugins" have been a
pretty significant attack vector for malware over the years.

I'm totally in favor of enabling this, but ... not by default.  Worse case,
if it can't fit into the existing Android startup configuration somehow, is
to enable it with a new plugin.  Kinda like I did with the iOS Remote Web
Inspector plugin.  Unless it's too late to enable it by the time the plugin
loads - it might well be.

Still, in any case, seems like it would be better to allow the user to
opt-in to this, instead of having to opt-out.
