The Mixed Content specification describes how a user agent should handle fetching of unsecure content from a secure context. For that purpose, Chrome currently treats any blob: and filesystem: content as secure although the spec says their origin should be checked instead (i.e. blob://https://... is secure but blob://http://... is not). This change is about making the mixed content checker follow this stricter behavior.

Motivation

- Alignment with the specification - Stricter security
