Join Nicole Sullivan and myself as we talk about how it’s time for us to re-assess whether HTML is done or not.
Let’s go back in time a bit. Remember when word was out that we were going to get new HTML elements? I don’t know about you, but I was so excited. After years of building the same tabset over and over, I thought, I’m done! Surely they’ll see that tabs are one of the most common elements in every design system ever. Imagine my disappointment. <aside>, <article>, and their friends seemed so disconnected from the problems I was solving every day. I had no problem with them, I just didn’t need them.
Since then, I have held onto the core belief that HTML shouldn’t be finished. Design Systems have been innovating and lighting the path forward for HTML for a long time. The web platform is now ready to pave those cow paths and extend HTML. And we need your help with these brand new shiny components!
Gives an overview of what we found from the initial survey and opportunity analysis regarding form controls. This information began to paint a picture for the opportunity that we have for all browsers to work together to improve the web platform; not only for a better developer experience but also for our shared end users.
Following up on our earlier research, we began to dig into the <select> control since it was the most frustrating control. This outlines what we see and how we plan to begin investigating it.
