Specification

None

Summary

Enable setting initial scroll positions via CSS properties. Scroll experiences don't always start at the beginning. Interactions with carousels, swipe controls, and listviews often start somewhere in the middle, and each require Javascript to set this position on page load. By enabling CSS to specify this scroll start position, both users, page authors and browsers benefit.



Blink component
