Other browser APIs we can leverage

As I described in this article, already three years ago, there are quite a few browser native APIs that can helps us compose beautiful and consistent user interfaces, without overhead, and that can be laveraged by independent teams working in decouple frontends.

Here is a list of the most important ones:

  • Mutation Observer
  • Intersection Observer
  • History -especially important to build a custom router and the URL strategy for UX-
  • Channel Messaging
  • Web Sockets
  • Drag and Drop
  • Picture-in-Picture
  • Push API
