[webkit-dev] Infinite scrolling feature exploration

Hi all,

We're experimenting with engine features that could help people build infinite scrolling websites. To start, we're prototyping an event for triggering the loading of new content when the user has scrolled near a content edge.

We'll be kicking off an open-ended discussion in the CSS WG about these events as well as other possible features for infinite scrolling. As a part of that discussion, we'd like to be able to have WG members grab a WebKit build to play with the prototype event and get a feel for how it works and if it's the sort of thing the platform should have.

I've got a patch that adds these events behind a flag and enables them on the Mac port (so people can grab a nightly and try them out). I’d like to land this patch this week so we can have a demoable prototype to talk about in the CSS WG. If you’re curious about the approach, check out the patch here: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=127371

If there are no objections, I'll land the patch on Thursday.
