@defaced I don’t think so. The closest we have is bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/iss…, which is about allowing sites to become a Text-to-Speech engine. See this spreadsheet cell on our API tracker: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d… (deeplink).

ChromiumDev The Web DNA Report 2019 identified browser compatibility as the top pain point for developers. We spent 2020 diving deeper: the MDN Browser Compatibility Report identifies specific issues and possible solutions.

@NorbertRittel @excalidraw @dluzar Could you create a bug and ping me the URL here, please? I can help route and triage. For context, here’s @dluzar’s bug: crbug.com/1131034. Thanks for your help in advance!

@NorbertRittel @excalidraw We also have a bug on Windows. @dluzar is submitting a crbug.com/new as we’re tweeting. It’s still behind a flag for a reason. 😃

@AmeliasBrain @nigeljohnwade @ChromeDevTools @mathias Can the time zone and the locale fields support autocomplete? A simple `<datalist>` (developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web…) could probably do the job (but haven’t checked myself).

I’ve landed File Handling support (github.com/excalidraw/exc…) in @excalidraw—a cool Project Fugu 🐡 feature:

1. (Re-)installexcalidraw.comq.
2. Open Finder/Explorer.
3. Doubleclick an `.excalidraw` file.
4. Edit on… 🎈

@4xfelix Danke dir für den Blogpost. Schön, eine externe Perspektive auf das Projekt zu lesen!

@darth_na @cemper This question is independent from the Idle Detection API, but here’s the answer:

Page Visibility detects if the screen is locked: w3.org/TR/page-visibi… and so does `document.hasFocus()`: html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/inte….

Demo: hasfocus-test.glitch.me

via Twitter Web App in reply to darth_na

@darth_na @cemper This API doesn’t change any of that (window focus) behavior. It barely lets developers know if a user is still using their device, but maybe in another tab or a different app than the browser.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to darth_na

@darth_na @cemper I was not referring to screen locks, but banking sites that log you out for “security” reasons when you may actually still be using your device, but are maybe looking up a banking account number somewhere in your email.

@nhoizey @firt OK, finally tracked this down to a specific blocklist and opened github.com/BlackJack8/iOS…. Hopefully this gets merged soon.

The Idle Detection API (web.dev/idle-detection/) lets you find out which of their devices a user is currently using, so you can dedupe notifications. Another use case is for a banking site to only log a user out when they’re truly idle—not just busy ltwitter.com/intenttoship/s…

@nigeljohnwade @AmeliasBrain This exactly! @ChromeDevTools has great I18N support. If something is missing, file a new.crbug.com (choose DevTools issue in the picker).
