ZDNet is touting this as new, but the majority of the discussion began at the 2018 Chrome Summit. Might there be an advantage to using
<portal> to embed discussions and ‘seamlessly’ transition users between content and discussion?
It’s already in Chrome 76, has anyone experimented with this yet?
What existing problem is this trying to solve? I am unclear.
I believe he is suggesting that technology be used in the source of discourse
That is not what I asked.
We will not be adding support for portals anywhere until other browser vendors start implementing it.
The idea according to the spec is to enable seamless navigation to oneboxed content.
I would say this is multiple years out before we even consider adopting this for specific oneboxes, it is a chrome experiment for now.
