      For those unfamiliar with this concept it is basically encapsulation for sets of elements on a web page.

      I really don't know why this hasn't began implementation already. I believe the W3C has been kicking around recommendations for Web Components for a while now. Facebook already has a Javascript API called React.js that uses the concept of a shadow DOM and I also see various implementations of this concept springing up around the web. I would rather the 800lb gorillas get together and devised some kind of concrete starting point in their browsers before APIs get too many and too disparate.

      Shadow DOM needs to be addressed soon in some concrete way.

      Microsoft please collaborate with other industry giants so that we don't have 3 or 4 different variations of shadow DOM traversal, manipulation, query, etc. to learn.

        It is about time we had a cross-browser audio format. Any future sites I create will use OGG/Vorbis, Opus, or another freely created open source file format. In fact the current site I am working on will never support legacy MP3 audio files nor will any in the future unless threats are involved. I will discourage any company from paying the vig. AAC is OK. However, AAC format will still require charges to sell encoders/decoders - http://www.vialicensing.com/licensing/aac-faq.aspx# which is better than MP3 but not great. For example, ffmpeg couldn't distribute with it so it could only be provided in source code format... LAME all over again). When I found out people couldn't use the LAME MP3 encoder or decode MP3 to without getting sued by Thompson, Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft (FhG), or whoever I was disappointed. If the user wishes to convert files to an older MP3 format for legacy MP3 players. Feel free... There are hundreds of programs to do this for personal use.

        At the time of this post Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and some newer Microsoft products already have support for Opus (OGG). OGG/Vorbis is another that is gaining steam. Plus Opus is now an accepted standard. So, the groundwork is set. Likely you are a techie like ourselves and would like to know that there is at least something you can use if you want to work with audio on the internet without digging through the internet and license agreements for working/licensed encoders. Opus could be that format. Please give us some option. Join with the other internet giants and support OGG format.
