WPD 673: The “origin” concept, check your document outline for errors, “keyboard-only user” irrelevant

  • Info

    • The HTML Standard clarifies the “origin” concept, spec (@………’s commit)
  • Media

    • Pre-caching with the sw-toolbox library (i.a. the toolbox.fastest caching mechanism), 8-min video
  • Tools

    • A bookmarklet that checks a page’s document outline for errors, @………’s post
  • Opinion

    • @………: It’s irrelevant whether there’s such a thing as a “keyboard-only user”, post
      • “If any one part of the website does not support the keyboard, then that experience will be broken. The user may still be able to use the site, because of their alternative pointing device, but that does not justify requiring an unnecessary change of device context or lack of clarity because the keyboard wasn’t considered.”

  • Other

    • You can test recent WebKit changes in the new Safari Technology Preview (for OS X), @………’s post
    • Opera Mobile blog: Apple’s browser restrictions (on iOS) restrain progress, @………’s post
      • “With the iOS 9.3 bug, hundreds of millions of users need to patiently wait for a fix and then install a completely new version to be able to browse again. On any other platform, you would simply use another browser.”
