You could test for support like this:

var testButton = document.createElement("button");
if (testButton.type != "share") {
// polyfill

<button type="share" value="title,text">?

For non-supporting browsers, it’s a regular button and needs polyfilling, no different to the situation with the JavaScript API. But if supported, no JS needed?

I am really, really disappointed by the back-tracking here.

I thought your proposal was brilliant because it didn’t involve hiding anything.

Hiding by default?

Whoever is plastering educational posters around the neighbourhood …I approve!

(Previous specimens included the periodic table and a solar system chart.)

When I was a kid, I thought the word “character” started with a “chuh” sound (’cause, y’know that is how it’s spelled).

I also pronounced the “b” in the “subtle” …which wasn’t.

Reading a lot just leads to embarrassment.

Seeing as Safari shows all the computed properties correctly, I’m guessing it was something that was introduced after the Webkit/Blink fork?

But weirdly, Firefox is showing the same behaviour as Chrome.

Seeing a spitfire fly over the neighbourhood rooftops of Brighton felt like something from a Christopher Priest book—a machine of The Adjacent breaking into the world of today.

Wow! Seeing a spitfire in flight is quite something! What a beauty!
