touchend handle touch controls. YUI recognises
flick, whereas developers had to program more complicated gestures like wipes with such events as
gesturemovestart, gesturemove and
gesturemoveend from scratch. Finger movements on the screen will be recognised as gestures, as will mouse driven device movements.
The developers put browser-specific code, primarily for Microsoft's Internet Explorer, into separate modules. As a result, YUI applications reportedly load faster for users of other browsers.
The first incarnation of the "CSS Grid" component is currently marked as beta code and examples are provided. This stylesheet provides classes that allow a website to be broken up into vertical strips or grids of a fixed width. Columns are available between half and one 24th of the overall width. Also marked as beta software and inspired by Apple's iPhone, ScrollView is another addition which provides fast vertical and horizontally navigable scrolling lists.
