Screen Enumeration on the web

This repository considers web platform functionality for multi-screen devices. The goals here are to elucidate some uses, limitations, and proposals for web technology on multi-screen devices. Screen Enumeration concerns the current fundamental inability of web platform users to discern the overall visual bounds available for displaying content.

Please see the Explainer and W3C Security and Privacy Self-Review Questionnaire response documents for a deeper dive into this topic. File issues here, reply to our W3C WICG Discourse posting, or reach out as you see fit with feedback, relevant use cases, and thoughts.

Please also take a look at the related Window Placement API proposal, which considers a similar set of topics regarding the creation and movement of windows on multi-screen devices.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
