Clipboard API only support writeText and not readText for web content. I believe this is "feature". However in Chromium there is pop-up asking for permissions, which sounds like much better option. Is there any way how to get permissions and use clipboard fully? Documentation mentions something about getting permissions, but I was never successful with it - is it possible or is it only for extensions?

This page says that Firefox supports reading the clipboard only in browser extensions, using the "clipboardRead" extension permission.
