Ever tried copying and pasting a link from a set of Google search results? Here's an example:
What's going on here? Tracking. Instead of directly being sent to the target URL, we're redirected through http://google.com/url so that Google can record what link is your preference and cater to your searches better in the future.
The ping attribute for hyperlinks aims to make this process more transparent, with additional benefits such as optimising network traffic so the target page loads more quickly, as well as an option to disable sending the pings for more user-friendly privacy.23 votes
The ping attribute is included in Edge included in the Windows insider, build 17074
We have the maxlength attribute to control the maximum number of characters in an <input> or <textarea>. The minlength attribute is new in HTML5, and is used to specify the minimum number of characters. We definitely need that, please be the first browser to implement it.56 votes
