We should remove resolveURL in favor of the URL specification.
Comment 2 Jonas Sicking 2011-09-15 07:36:00 UTC
I agree with Anne. Does anyone implement location.resolveURL?
Comment 3 Anne 2011-09-15 08:38:04 UTC
I stopped it in WebKit: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=61097#c39
Comment 4 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2011-10-18 20:23:05 UTC
Do we have a spec for URL() that I can point people to?
Comment 5 Anne 2011-10-19 01:29:14 UTC
I created http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/url/raw-file/tip/Overview.html some time ago. Hopefully Adam will maintain it.
