Gamepad Trigger Rumble for Xbox Controllers

Currently, there are gamepads, like Microsoft's Xbox Controller, which come equipped with "impulse triggers" capable of providing trigger-rumble feedback to the user. While the GamepadHapticActuator, part of the Gamepad Haptics Extension proposal, already provides support for dual-rumble effect, it does not allow developers to have access to trigger-rumble yet. This change will allow game developers to equip their web applications with a wider set of haptics feedback options, making it possible for their users to have a richer and more engaging experience on the web.

Available from Microsoft Edge 109 to 114
