Notes

See also support for the related DOM range

  1. Supports window.getSelection() but no selection events

  2. Supports selection events, but not window.getSelection()

  3. Does not support the selectstart event

  4. window.getSelection() may fail on tapping buttons, as the selection is lost right before the listener code runs.

  5. Selection events are supported behind the dom.select_events.enabled flag
