At the same time, Google has decided to implement Microsoft’s Pointer Events API in Chrome. The pointer events API is currently only available in the IE10 browser found in Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. Via the technology, user input can be handled in a browser that comes from the mouse, a touchscreen or the keyboard. In addition, a high degree of abstraction would allow the api to handle future input methods. Firefox has also indicated that it is working on support for the pointer events api.
