Feature Inbox

How to propose a new feature

To propose a new feature for any of our products, you must first create a feature page for it, here: Create a new feature page. When you change your feature's "Stage" to "Feature Inbox" it will magically appear on this list. The Product team goes through this list regularly, evaluating and prioritizing each item.

Sync Enhancements Mobile ` 31 January 2012 19:44:24
WebGL support (making it fast on mobile) Mobile Needs OpenGL compositing; demo: https://developer.mozilla.org/media/uploads/demos/p/a/paulrouget/589de0f34bbb1594cee167d4dac2cbf4/html5-dashboard-mobi_1307439841_demo_package/index.html -> 3D -> WebGL On hold due to problems figuring out how to do this on Android. Read back is still very expensive. So compositing, as stated before, is incorrect. JP will follow up with a partner on this. But right now this is on hold. 2 September 2011 19:14:47

Generational GC for the JavaScript Engine Platform We need the incremental GC work to land before we can do a generational GC. So this is on hold until that work is done. 2 September 2011 19:02:44
Support for TLS False Start Platform Current on hold due to incompatibilities with a lot of public-facing web sites. Still required for SPDY? (No, it's not.) 13 September 2011 18:28:00
