The HTML is sanitized when it is read and written to the clipboard.Scroll to Text Fragment2020-08-07T16:19:56ZChrome Platform,2020-08-07:/feature/4733392803332096/This feature allows a user or author to link to a specific portion of a page, using a text snippet provided in the URL. When the page is loaded, the browser highlights the text and scrolls it into view. For example, the URL: [,%20birds%20can%20contribute%20as%20much%20as%2060%%20of%20a%20cat%27s%20diet] This loads the page for Cat, highlights the specified text, and scrolls directly to it.droppedEntry in PerformanceObserver's observe()2020-08-07T16:19:11ZChrome Platform,2020-08-07:/feature/5663336802811904/Currently, web developers can use PerformanceObserver with buffered flag to listen to past and future performance entries about their site. However, past entries need to be stored, and there is a buffer size limit. The `droppedEntry` boolean flag helps developers know if they may have lost an entry due to this storage being full. It's set to true when there exists an entryType being observed for which an entry got dropped from the buffer due to such buffer being full.document.fragmentDirective2020-08-07T15:54:26ZChrome Platform,2020-08-07:/feature/5679640498667520/This change moves window.location.fragmentDirective to document.fragmentDirective which seems like a more appropriate and safer place.

The standard is formally referred to as application caches. New Web applications should be built around Service Workers. Existing applications that use AppCache should migrate to Service Workers. AppCache access was removed from insecure origins in M70. This intent addresses AppCache usage in secure origins.Interoperable Element's scrollLeft and scrollTop in non-default writing modes2020-08-06T20:51:35ZChrome Platform,2020-08-06:/feature/5759578031521792/Change Chrome's behavior such that when a scrollable element has content overflowing to the left (or to the top) then its horizontal (or vertical) scroll position will be zero at its initial position and negative when scrolled leftward (or upward).
