Content Security Policy API, Flexible Animations and Sticky Positioning
Published on in Google Chrome, Last Week, tech, WebKit. Version: Chrome 22
A total of 1,517 commits landed last week, 692 for WebKit and 825 for Chromium.
Web Inspector’s Settings dialog has received a new experimental option to override the Geolocation results. Experimental support for supporting SASS source-maps has been implemented as well, and drag and drop won’t be started anymore when using right clicks.
CSS Transitions and Animations now work between different types of length units, for example from percentage to pixel-based widths. For the Flexible Box Module implementation, percentage-sizes items will now wrap properly and the “order” property will now influence the painting order as well.
As for new features, a build flag was added announcing work on CSS Blending and Compositing. Simon started working on implementing sticky positioning, starting with the compile-time flag and parsing support. Sticky positioning is useful for elements that should remain visible on the screen regardless of the scrolling position, while also sticking to their containing element.
