Persistent Storage Permission (Durable Storage)

Allow sites to request that web storage be treated as "persistent", preventing Chrome's automatic storage eviction from clearing storage for that site. The permission is automatically granted when the site: - Is bookmarked (if the user has <= 5 bookmarks) - Is added to homescreen - Has push notification permissions - Has high site engagement (Launched as Origin Trial in M52)
