I would like to listen what do you think to support
'registerProtocolHandler' in WebKit2.
This feature is to execute web content through registered custom protocol.
- For example, web content can register "mailto" custom protocol using this
<title>Web Protocol Handler Sample - Test</title>
<p>Send an email : <a href="mailto://">this !</a></p>
Besides this feature has been supported by Mozilla and Chromium (From
Mozilla 3.0, Chromium 13).
The feature is included in the W3C recommendation 28 released on Oct. 2014.
- W3C spec : http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/webappapis.html#custom-handlers
IIRC, some WebKit1 ports supported this feature though, those ports were
deprecated. Now WebKit port supports this feature no more.
There is a very old bug to support this feature though, it wasn't
maintained so far. Recently I updated it based on latest WebKit.
Feel free to give me any feedback about this feature.
