 those. (Or write our own).

 Although the network predictor is currently disabled. Thus here we should
 weigh the benefits with the complexity the new code introduces (we have
 #16633 for that fwiw; we might need to look at #16633/#16625 again.
 Especially: "The seer does not record any data, nor does it take any
 action, when in private browsing mode." seems worth to contemplate as we
 are in permanent private browsing mode.
