How we built it

Fractional TouchEvent co-ordinates

Updates co-ordinates returned by TouchEvent objects to include the full precision provided by the underlying platform.

Comments

IE doesn't support TouchEvents so not directly relevant there, but they use doubles in their PointerEvents and have expressed support for changing TouchEvents as part of the TouchEvents community group: http://www.w3.org/2014/05/06-pointerevents-minutes.html#item06.
