Why doesn't the "allow" bar tell you if the request is to redirect or for something else? It should display the site you are being asked to redirect to or other information that will help one choose to "allow" or not.

Is this also connected with the offline storage option? I can't find any information about what that is for and why anyone would ask for it. Is this another thing the "allow" button could be asking for and if so, why doesn't it say so?
