W3C publishes a draft standard for touch based interaction for web applications. The draft specifications are intended to provide a standards driven approach to web application awareness of touch based events, such as hover which is currently not supported. The draft is primarily driven by web-kit based strategies given the dominant position held by web-kit based browsers in the touch screen market. Such specifications and approaches should also serve as a basis for assuring the development of accessibility methods for touch based web applications.
