Specification

https://drafts.csswg.org/css-color/#the-hwb-notation

Summary

HWB (short for Hue-Whiteness-Blackness) is another method of specifying sRGB colors, similar to HSL, but often even easier for humans to work with. It describes colors with a starting hue, then a degree of whiteness and blackness to mix into that base hue.

Example CSS declaration: color:hwb(194 0% 0%);


Since hwb() resolves to RGB, it's a relatively straightforward addition that doesn't add complexity or performance concerns.

Oops, should have specified that initially. M100 is in a feature freeze, so M101 as suggested by Eric sounds good to me. (Chromestatus entry updated to reflect that).
