@zcorpan @jh3yy Browsers deal with this already, don’t they? There’s a maximum recursion stack depth I think (not sure about the correct term).

via Echofon in reply to zcorpan

@jh3yy @hdv Can `<optgroup>`s be nested? A somewhat contrived example would be for something like a regional flag picker where you pick by continent (Europe), then country (France), then region (Provence).

If we want to customise our selects with selectmenu, we can “simply” do it via CSS or we can do it with full control over the markup, our choice!

@reillyeon Neat. This project will be included in the 🐡 Project Fugu API Showcase at the next deploy. Cheers! 🍻

@noel_mace @steveworkman Same situation. Arguments haven’t changed.

@noel_mace @steveworkman We mostly agree to disagree on the device picker model being sufficient or not to convey user consent: “The Web Bluetooth CG has opted to only rely on user consent, which we believe is not sufficient protection.” Google is of

@coderinheels @manekinekko Ah, neat. Thanks for responding. I was just curious. Maybe consider adding who’s behind the conference to the homepage. As far as I understand the conference is new, so I didn’t have background on it. Thanks again!

@manekinekko Who’s the team behind this conference? Not a single word about this on the website. Are you part of it?

jensimmons Have an idea for web developer tools?

Web Inspector (Safari’s devtools) is also open source, and made of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Also now 100% in Git, on Github. We love open-source contributions!

@jensimmons This is really neat! Since you have the code (github.com/WebKit/WebKit/…) and this looks and feels like `window.EyeDropper` (github.com/WICG/eyedroppe…), any plans on Web-exposing it, which @bramus asked for in bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?i…, too? Thanks!

@Amy_Hupe Hi, I’m Tom. I’m not a native speaker of English and I do have a bit of an accent, but it’s OK, you can still perfectly understand what I’m saying. Just thought I’d mention it just in case.

Great thread by @svoisen ⤵️ on the path from a clear developer need (performant file access to allow for file-based database backends) to a new Web platform API, which is still in-flux (github.com/whatwg/fs/issu…). Enabling use cases like this is the cortwitter.com/svoisen/status…

@rem @ffconf As until ES5, parsing of strings was entirely implementation-dependent. After the ES5 spec, the ISO 8601 format (YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ss.sssZ) is explicitly specified, while other formats are still implementation-defined[.]-developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web…
