Pointer Events

Microsoft wrote a spec called Pointer Events API that unifies touch, stylus and mouse inputs, and implemented it in IE11 (partially in IE10). Firefox are implementing it too. After initial enthusiasm from Google, Chrome announced that it won’t support it, after all.

  • HTTP 203: Pointer Events – 4 min video in which Jank Architect and Longpoll Lewis explain why Chrome thinks the Pointer Events API smells.
  • Jacob Rossi of Microsoft disputes the claims (G+ link, sorry).
  • More discussion about the Pointer Events Smell video from @SlexAxton, @davemethvin (jQuery): “It all boils down to ‘Why is Chrome+IE+Firefox not enough for Pointer Events, but Chrome+Firefox enough for Touch Events extensions?'”
