Block navigator.vibrate in cross-origin iframes (removed)

Calls to navigator.vibrate will immediately return 'false' inside cross-origin iframes.The Vibrate API is being abused by unsafe third-party content (eg., malicious ads). As of Chrome 57 this is relaxed to allow vibration after the user has tapped on the frame. See https://crbug.com/683938.
