- <menu> and context menus feature (“contextmenu” attribute)
- <input type=color>
- <input type=datetime>, <input type=month>, <input type=week>, <input type=time>, <input type=datetime-local>
- <style scoped>
- <iframe seamless>
- Custom scheme and content handlers (registerProtocolHandler and registerContentHandler)
- Outline algorithm
