    Definitely worth having. Different implementations currently make it a usability and accessibility nightmare

    This is such a common pattern implemented in so many different ways currently due to lack of native support, it should be top priority.

    I and all my friends and family and co-workers would like support for this feature. Please provide ASAP.

    Please provide support for this <dialog>, ASAP. It will reduce time, resource, money and provide a consistent and accessible experience rather easily. Thank you.

    Dialogs are everyone on the web and often create accessibility barriers for keyboard and screen reader users. Supporting the dialog element has the potential to make implementing an accessible modal dialog trivial and reduce the number of inaccessible dialogs on the web. Please add support for the dialog element as soon as possible!

    Building an accessible custom dialog is a major PITA and often doesn't get implemented correctly for AT or keyboard only users, its been in the spec since 2012...

    Come on guys, take this off the backlog. I had to implement dialogs today by hand for the 100th time; it's about time we have a native way to do this

    This has the potential to be a good replacement for the showModalDialog() command. We have an enterprise application written in that relies heavily on this command for popup windows. The HTML 5 dialog command could give us equivalent functionality... much like an iframe.
