Hey everyone,

I wanted to check on the status of Web MIDI API implementation from browser
vendors. As far as I know, there are no started efforts and especially not
complete implementations around yet, but I'm curious to hear even if anyone
has plans regarding this. I'm also curious to know which parties aren't
planning to implement (any time soon), possible reasons, and if it's just
that they haven't had the time to check the spec yet. Even if you aren't
interested in the API at all (which I doubt, but be honest), I want to know
so we can talk about it.

If the WG is to meet the previously discussed milestones for the Web MIDI
API, IMHO we would need at least one implementation to run against the spec
to have a clearer map of the problems there might be. I know that at least
Mozilla has some student project connections and I think that this spec
might be a great target for a student project. :)

Thanks for the help!

Cheers,
Jussi
