How we built it

Fetch API

Fetch API is a new API for loading resources in web applications. It's intended to supersede XMLHttpRequest. Fetch API is already available in ServiceWorker scope. This entry is for announcing its availability in window scope.


Issue where we're discussing window scope specific issues., Example of web developer views: IE team has listed the Fetch API in their dashboard and it's marked as "Under Consideration".
