Comment (by celloexpressions):

 In-progress Customizer patch is now on #29211. We're still waiting for the
 initial commit for the settings version so that the base API can be reused
 with only the administration layer changing. The experience will be
 smoother there since cropping is handled directly in the media modal so
 you never leave the page/break the flow. If this is planning on being
 saved up until right before beta, I would appreciate knowing that sooner
 rather than later so that I can just copy the API to build into the
 Customizer version so that it can also be ready in time, but that seems
 like a silly way to go about this.

 Sidenote: we should use a more generic browser chrome image if we really
 want to have that there. And we might as well put the site title there too
 if it isn't already in the patch. We also know the site url, so the start
 of that would be nicer than "www.". In the Customizer, I'm planning on
 just live-updating the icon in the browser window via JS, which most
 modern browsers support (Slack does this, for example). Seems like that
 should be adequate? Would appreciate more screenshots of what the patch
 does posted on this ticket though.
