This feature is only shown in the feature list to users with edit access.

We will start treating all AppCache manifests as if they contain "*" in their NETWORK section. This effectively means that we will always fallback to the network if a resource is not otherwise specified in the AppCache manifest.

Motivation

There are security issues with letting websites block access to (potentially cross-origin) URLs, as this can be used to learn something about cross-origin redirects. Since AppCache is already deprecated and slated to be removed, rather than trying to fix the security aspects of this, we decided to disable the entire feature that allows blocking access to certain URLs instead.
