Notes

Internet Explorer implements Pointer Events specification which supports more input devices than Touch Events one.

There is a library on GitHub that is working toward bringing W3C touch events to IE 10 and 11: https://github.com/CamHenlin/TouchPolyfill

Removed support in Firefox refers to desktop Firefox only.

  1. Can be enabled in Firefox using the dom.w3c_touch_events.enabled flag (disabled by default for site compatibility reasons)

  2. Supported on IE11 Mobile for phones with "Windows Phone 8.1 Update"

  3. Can be enabled in Edge using the "Enable touch events" flag under about:flags

Bugs

  • Beware, android 2.3 and below do not detect multiple touches.

  • Firefox 4 & 5 support a non-standard implementation to achieve the same.
