System Information API

From Client and Server JavaScript APIs Community Group

This API is meant to provide useful informations about the system If some of them like "Power" or "AmbiantLight" don't make much sense on the server, other ones like "CPU", "Thermal", or "Network" can provide useful informations

This specification unfortunately looks to be abandoned since 2010


We are looking for representatives of this HTML5 API to discuss of potentially needed updates to consider server-side implementations


  • The full API is asynchronous while it could be used a synchronous way from workers and multi-threaded servers
  • The interfaces are set on the navigator object which is not very good semantically for the server
