A site I went to for the first time popped up a message that implied it wanted to INSTALL something in my browser. I sent a message to the site owners asking why their site was trying to install an add-on in my browser with no warning or notice about what it actually was. I was embarrassed to find this was far from true - it just wanted MIDI access permissions. (See included image.)
This popup is badly worded, misleading, and needs to be changed. MIDI access, unless it's been coded extremely wrong, cannot "steal your data", download anything, or force anything involving malware. And it certainly isn't INSTALLING anything, so why does the button say "Continue to Installation"??? The worst it could do would be to play unwanted notes!
The message needs to include SPECIFICS, as well. Which device(s) is the site requesting permission for would be real good to know. Every other browser includes this information when asking to grant permissions.
Please fix this as soon as possible. And fire the person that decided this pop-up was good enough to be in a working release.
