First Public Working Draft of the CSS Will-Change Module Published

The CSS Working Group has published a First Public Working Draft of CSS Will-Change. This module defines a single property, “will-change”, which allows the author to provide hints to the browser about what aspects of an element will change in the near future, allowing browsers to set up appropriate optimizations ahead of time, before the change occurs.

Implementation is already proceeding in Firefox and Blink-based browsers (Chrome, Opera), and this specification is expected to advanced to Candidate Recommendation quickly. Any nitpicks on the precise semantics of the property are welcome.

As always, please send feedback to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-will-change]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)
