I tried following content in latest FF (41.0.2) and Opera(33.0) but FF trying to add sidebar.html to bookmark, and Opera just opened sidebar.html as normal hyperlink. Should I enable some configure for that? or the test content is not proper? or maybe just feature changed between different version.


<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
  <a rel="sidebar" href="./sidebar.html">sidebar sample</a>
</body>
</html>

We should probably start by gathering various use cases to see how the different media with TOCs behave, to figure out if this is an on/off switch, or if there are more variants (or if this is the correct axis at all). For example, we should look at different epub readers, pdf renderers, assistive technologies...

That was indeed my initial issue that triggered my question but, obviously, there may be other use cases.

One possibly-useful and possibly-related media feature might be for the presence or absence of a "secondary browsing context" as defined in HTML5. In Firefox and Opera, a rel=sidebar link will open in a browser sidebar, which is very similar conceptually to an ebook reading system's built-in navigation.
