  • The strangely difficult problem of drawing a box around text
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-25
    Unfortunately the HTML spec hasn't yet clearly defined how TextMetrics work, so you can end up with different text alignment and measurements between browsers. See this spec issue: https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/6731
  • Why don't more people build games for the browser?

    Another point: Unlike languages such as Java where there is only a single authority over deprecations in the web dev world there are at least three, which means three times the amount of checking that needs to be done. Plus the few environments that check for deprecations are unlikely to pull from all sources. I am aware that a counterpoint is that there is https://github.com/whatwg/html and it has a well established way of commenting on deprecations and removals. However I doubt that anyone here will be going to regularly read the opened PRs and find solutions prematurely. Most (if not everyone) is going to wait until it actually breaks - which will happen give enough time.

    Have you read the HTML specification? Have you marked highlights, taken notes, and reviewed what you learned? Have you reported issues and made suggestions to the HTML working group, giving back and improving the standard?

    TBF even the spec authors are a bit confused about that attribute: https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/5466

    It has complex and non-obvious effects. greggman on the three.js issue wrote a really nice summary on why it shouldn't be the default.

    It's really only appropriate for highly latency sensitive applications, like drawing or certain games.

  • What if Chrome broke features of the web and Google forgot to tell anyone? Oh wait, that's exactly what happened

    I think this is almost funny. If it weren't so sad.

    Fortunately, in January of 2008, W3C released the fifth version of HTML which provides the scripting Drag and Drop API that can be used with JavaScript.
  • How many web standards officially existed ?
    reddit.com/r/Frontend | 2021-09-19
    Looking online explain to what are web standards and why they must exist, which I already understand. But no article give me a completed list of web standards. I know there are the living html standard and also the ecma standard, just wonder how many web standard actually existed

    6. If you had a bad experience and many discussion points in 4/5 you go back to 4 and refine until you had a good experience and your spec is merged.

    You imply the Chromium authors went 1, 3, ship because you read step 1 happened. In reality they consulted with Firefox and Safari months before 3 and certainly prior to lobbing the spec proposal over the fence. https://github.com/whatwg/html/pull/6297

    Apparently they are. How disappointing I really like how useful they are for quickly getting something working and maintaining a consistent and expected experience for the user.

    I think they may have meant to link this instead:


    there's also another reply to the parent with a link to the chromium issue tracker confirming this
