Pointer events extend DOM input events to support various pointing input devices such as pen/stylus and touch screens as well as mouse. The pointer is a hardware-agnostic device that can target a specific set of screen coordinates. Having a single event model for pointers can simplify creating Web sites, applications and provide a good user experience regardless of the user's hardware.
Traditionally, a web page has to send a request to the server to receive new data; that is, the page requests data from the server. With server-sent events, it's possible for a server to send new data to a web page at any time, by pushing messages to the web page. These incoming messages can be treated as Events + data inside the web page.
HTML Drag and Drop interfaces enable applications to use drag and drop features in Firefox and other browsers. For example, with these features, the user can select draggable elements with a mouse, drag the elements to a droppable element, and drop those elements by releasing the mouse button. A translucent representation of the draggable elements follows the mouse pointer during the drag operation.
