Client Hints, a method to request information about the user's device or conditions, have been implemented in Chrome, but since the initial implementation the naming scheme has changed. If implemented, this proposal would add new client hints with a `sec-ch-` prefix to re-implement the following: `dpr`, `width`, `viewport-width`, `device-memory`, `rtt`, `downlink`, and `ect`.

Motivation

This proposal seeks to align our implementation with the Client Hint proposal by adding the `sec-ch-` prefix where it’s missing.
