Web Share makes share buttons within web pages more useful and coherent. Just wish more apps would place themselves in that OS-wide menu. Idea: app that can add custom Share menu entries, process with scripts.

I share the concerns regarding features with extra high risk of leaking sensitive data. The operating system should control access for those who wish to disable such features; it doesn’t necessarily have to ask for each capability just because the option exists. Those would of course still need to trust the app’s own isolation for web pages if they for app features require access to e.g. file system or Bluetooth.
