need way to pass Escape through pass-through mode

See original GitHub issue

When in pass-through mode, sometimes it’s useful to be able to pass Escape through to the website. Example use case:

  • Go to a GitHub page
  • Press Alt-i to enable pass-through mode
  • Press ? to see the GitHub keyboard shortcuts modal dialog
  • Now I want to hide the GitHub dialog

However Escape simply cancels pass-through mode, so this is currently impossible. What seems to work instead is pressing Escape twice: the first cancels the mode, and the second somehow reaches the website. But of course then I have to press Alt-i to switch back into pass-through, which is not ideal.

@PrestanceDesign commented:

Maybe toggle PassThrough with the same keysAlt+i ?

Ahh, that’s an interesting idea, but I agree with @brookhong that not everyone would expect or like this. So maybe make it an option whether PassThrough is exited via Esc or Alt+i? The default configuration would be the current behaviour, and people like me could reconfigure the exit key to be Alt+i instead of Esc.
