Servicification

Summary

The Chromium codebase now supports many platforms and use cases. In response, we need to migrate the code base to a more modular, service-oriented architecture. This will produce reusable and decoupled components while also reducing duplication. It also allows the Chrome team and other groups to experiment with new features without needing to modify Chrome.
