This session will focus on HTML, CSS and JS. Some features you will have heard of – like Container Queries and the Parent Selector :has, which you can use already. The main bulk of the session will focus on stuff you may not have heard of – and will probably not be able to use right now. But a little bit down the road some of this will be quite useful.
- For example, did you know that we have an brand new HTML element with <search>? With this addition every ARIA landmark now has a native HTML equivalent..
- CSS Cascade Layers offer developers better control over which styles take priority, by defining explicit contained layers of specificity.
- The View Transitions API will allow animated transitions between different web pages.
- The Popover API proposes a standard mechanism for displaying popovers on the Web.
There is actually a lot more on the horizon. Let’s see how much I can cram into 45 minutes. We will not go into details for every feature as some aspects are still changing. The session aims to give you a good overview over some exciting topics.
