"Top 10" compat bugs (miketaylr)
Dev Marketing would like pointers to common bugs for mobile and desktop (see email to compat list), across HTML, CSS, JS, DOM, HTTP, A/V https://docs.google.com/document/d/1wYJSRQEbnFkPxHgvf_e8hC_RwWGrUd8hfdk-3t8HESs/edit
- mike: Dev marketing is interested by most common bugs.
- karl: This is similar to the github repo I started with common bugs and articles to be written. https://github.com/webcompat/webcompat-howto https://miketaylr.com/posts/ types of issues:
- UA detection version fail
- HTTP ping pong (mobile <-> desktop 302s), UA sniffing not the same on both sides
- touch or click scripts, not both (nytimes?)
- video formats, HLS
- non-standard APIs, etc.
- out of date frameworks
ACTION ITEM: each of us to put in ~3 bugs by EOD tomorrow.
- mike: met with Andrew and Daniel to introduce Adam and get their perspective on desktop web compatibility
- karl: most issues span across both desktop and mobile, more gecko related
- mike: keep trying to understand why compat is important, continue to try to define it
- karl: Yoohoo! Maybe?! need to test.
- karl: I was surprised, today I tested Gmail very quickly. It seems that they fixed the border-image bugs. I need to go through again the UI to be sure. If it's the case, we can remove the UA override.
- mike: Is this with our webkit stuff?
- karl: I need to double check, but I think it will work without that in release.
