Spartan To Temove 300ms Delay, Pointer Events Become W3C RecommenadtionRecently, Microsoft has announced a couple new things, first of all, their Pointer Events model has now been accepted by W3C and became a recommended standard, which means that other browser vendors should be implementing it in the near future, hopefully.

In addition to that, there have been changes in the new rendering engine that is set to power Spartan. Due to the double tap issue (where a browser must pause for 300ms to see if there will be another one (assuming users want to zoom)), there comes a delay. While there are many workarounds (even for IE10), they are not ideal.

The good news? Spartan will remove the 300ms delay. As according to Microsoft, “now in the new engine, setting a viewport rule with a width less than or equal to the device-width (a strong signal that you’re not a desktop site we need to optimize for small screens) will also disable the 300ms delay. This results in significant performance wins for mobile sites.”
