            Bug ID: 180821
           Summary: Add support for autocapitalize attribute in macOS
                    Safari
           Product: WebKit
           Version: Safari 11
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML Editing
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

I am currently working on getting the autocapitalize attribute standardized as part of the HTML spec:
https://github.com/whatwg/html/pull/3273

It's mostly based on the current implementation in iOS Safari, so hopefully WebKit doesn't need to make any changes there. However, currently the attribute is not exposed on macOS Safari. We decided it should probably be exposed there for two reasons:

1. The IDL interface should be consistent across platforms, even where no input methods support autocapitalization.

2. Some macOS input methods may in fact want to allow web authors to control autocapitalization. For example, Chrome for Android respects the attribute for voice input, and macOS also supports voice input.
