The ability to lock the orientation of the screen so that the screen orientation doesn't automatically change when the device is rotated.

This is especially important for games.

Note that it isn't necessary for this property to be programmatically modifiable during the application's lifecycle.

It has just been added to the WebApps WG new charter under the name of View Orientation API.
