How we built it

Streams API

APIs for creating, composing, and consuming streams of data, that map efficiently to low-level I/O primitives, and allow easy composition with built-in backpressure and queuing.

Comments

We're shipping the Streams API features step-by-step. See http://crbug.com/240603 for streamed fetching. See https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/4531143755956224 for user constructible ReadableStream. IE10 shipped a prefixed version of a different streams API.
