None. A WebKit extension.
In Blink, 'results' attribute just adds a magnifier icon to an INPUT field. It's a cosmetic feature.
In desktop Safari, it controls how many submitted queries are shown in a popup opened by clicking the magnifier icon.
This is a WebKit-extension, and it seems no one tried to standardize it.
We'd like to deprecate this attribute in M51, and remove it in M53.
It's a WebKit extension.
Firefox: Not implemented.
Edge: Not implemented.
Safari: Shipped for years
Web developers: No signals
The usage is about 0.04%. However, because this is just a cosmetic feature in Google Chrome, it should be safe to remove it.
Ongoing technical constraints
We had to relax OSX sandbox only for 'results' attribute. See crbug.com/508935
. We can avoid this issue by drawing an image ourselves. However, investing in a WebKit-only feature is not reasonable.
Was this feature supported on all six Blink platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux,
Chrome OS, Android, and Android WebView)? Yes or no.
