How to give feedback

You can email public-fx@w3.or with subject beginning “[web-animations] … ”

On IRC: irc.w3.org#webanimations

On the Animation at Work Slack’s #WAAPI channel.


All browsers except for webkit (iOS Safari, Safari) have begun implementing the API. It’s a large API, so not all browsers have completely implemented all of its components. CanIUse.com is not a reliable source for compatibility as it does not report in detail on which features are implemented in which browsers. Fortunately, there’s a manual test you can do yourself.


People who have some familiarity with C++ coding, you can help implement the API in Firefox. Brian Birtles might even mentor you! And Mozilla’s always looking for people to help write docs on MDN.

People to follow/pester

  • Brian Birtles—major author of spec, Mozilla Japan
  • Tab Atkins—Googler, coauthor, works on (CSS) specs
  • Me—Invited expert at W3C, vocal input-giver on spec.

And of course, you can meet us all on the #waapi channel at the Animation at Work Slack.
