Non-standard APIs and Properties required for Web Compatibility

This page contains a list of CSS and DOM properties & APIs required for compatibility with the de-facto (mobile) web.

Each is grouped into a group of relative priority, as perceived by the Web Compat team (based on known issues in Bugzilla and webcompat.com and other investigations).

Parts of this list will eventually make its way into the Compatibility Standard.

This document of WebKit stuff implemented in Microsoft Edge also serves as a guide, though not everything will be as important for Gecko.

Needs investigation to understand potential compat impact

  • max-width 100% inside of table (975632 + blockers/dependencies, related, etc). In the process of trying to understand this bug, I went on a journey to graph the dependencies.
