Hello webkit-dev, I'd like to solicit feedback as well as an official position from Webkit on our proposal for the text fragment directive: https://github.com/WICG/ScrollToTextFragment.
In summary: this is a feature that allows authors and users to craft URLs to pages and specify a snippet of text on the page as a subresource (visually highlighting it and scrolling it into view). Analogous to element-id based fragment anchors but for text. You can try this out today in Chrome Beta by enabling chrome://flags/#enable-text-fragment-anchor. Here's an example link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniform_Resource_Identifier#:~:text=An%20optional%20fragment,element%20into%20view Relevant Links: <https://github.com/WICG/ScrollToTextFragment/blob/master/README.md> Explainer <https://github.com/WICG/ScrollToTextFragment/blob/master/README.md> Spec <https://wicg.github.io/ScrollToTextFragment/> TAG Review <https://github.com/w3ctag/design-reviews/issues/392> (Currently Suspended) Blink Intent Thread <https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/#!msg/blink-dev/zlLSxQ9BA8Y/NLbg84m0EAAJ> Issue on Mozilla standards-positions <https://github.com/mozilla/standards-positions/issues/194> We've been using the GitHub repo for issue tracking but happy to take feedback (official or otherwise) in any form. Thank you! David
