Should be in ff14 on Android.  I did not do the backend for any desktop/laptops yet.

Ok, so if we go with the above:

[Constructor(DOMString type, optional LightEventInit eventInitDict)]
interface DeviceLightEvent : Event {
   readonly attribute double value;  

dictionary LightEventInit : EventInit  {
   double value;

* Where "EventInit" is defined in DOM4.  

And then one can still feature check using the DeviceLightEvent interface prototype object, which is nice:

if(window.DeviceLightEvent){ … }

Doug, BTW, your post implied that it should be in FF 15… I tried seeing if it was implemented in Aurora, but no joy. Any idea when the API might become available?  

Kind regards,
