Pointer Events Progress: Mozilla and Blink Communities Reach a Significant Engineering Milestone
As stated in the Blink 2014 goals, the Blink team considers Pointer Events as one of their priorities to improve the mobile Web platform experience. And it has recently shown evidence of their commitment to Pointer Events by checking in touch-action functionality into the code base and making it available through an experimental flag.
Likewise, the Mozilla Firefox team has approved a patch submitted by Nick Lebedev from Akvelon that implements the same functionality. This is the result of months of great work in the OSS community where multiple engineers from different companies contributed their design ideas and engineering insights.
