&lt;dael> Topic:  [selectors-4] Rename :focus-ring to :focus-indicator<br>

&lt;dael> bkardell_: I can represent<br>
&lt;dael> bkardell_: :focus-ring is what the mozilla folks used on early prefix impl. When we said we'd adopt we carried the name, but most doc use a different name and it's frequently not a name. In practice the name was confusing. WE proposed focus-indicator which matches most doc, but there were worried that sounded more like a psuedo element<br>
&lt;dael> TabAtkins: once of the obj from Alice to focus-ring is people think it's a pseudo element styling the ring and if that's the confusion then focus-indicator just genericises the noun since we name the thing shown not the quality of the element.<br>
&lt;dael> bkardell_: That's a fair other observation. I think focus-visible is what people on GH seem to have gathered around and there's a standing pull request with that.<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: So I guess the current runner is focus-visible<br>
&lt;tantek> I reviewed https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/2036 and :focus-visible makes sense to me per Tab's arguments about noun/thing vs. state of thing<br>
&lt;dael> bkardell_: Yes and there's an outstanding PR so we can just accept that.<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: I'm sad focus-focus isn't it, but focus-visible is good.<br>
&lt;fantasai> wfm<br>
&lt;dael> TabAtkins: I'm fine with focus-visible<br>
&lt;dael> Rossen_: Other opinions?<br>
&lt;tantek> s/focus-focus/focus-pocus<br>
&lt;dael> RESOLVED: change the name to :focus-visible<br>
