Open issues/risks

  • bug 653009 - Make preventDefault for touch events compatible with WebKit/Opera

Stage 1: Definition

1. Feature overview

Expose touch events to content for better interaction with web pages and services, and compatibility with WebKit/Opera and existing web content.

2. Users & use cases

  • Expose single-touch events to content in Fennec.
  • Don't let pages completely block navigation or sidebar panning.
  • Compatibility with existing pages like Google Maps.
  • Conformance with a subset of W3C Touch Events editor's draft.
  • Compatibility with a common subset of Safari/Android/WebKit functionality.

3. Dependencies

`

4. Requirements

  • No performance regressions on non-touch-event pages.
  • Acceptable performance of touch events in content. (Need more precise criteria?)
  • Sidebar (or some alternate form of navigation) is still accessible on pages that use touch events.

Non-goals

  • Expose multiple simultaneous touches to content (will be done in a part 2).
  • 100% conformance with W3C Touch Events spec (will be completed in future versions).
  • 100% compatibility with Safari or other browsers.
  • Enable W3C touch events in desktop Firefox (will be done in future versions).
