Site Isolation Trial

We're continuing to roll out Site Isolation to a larger percentage of the stable population in Chrome 67. Site Isolation improves Chrome's security and helps mitigate the risks posed by Spectre.

To diagnose whether an issue is caused by Site Isolation, use chrome://flags#site-isolation-trial-opt-out as described here. Please report any trial-specific issues to help us fix them before Site Isolation is launched more broadly.
