So we are now still forced to use an empty form:

```
<form action="/example/">
    <button type="submit">Link button</button>
</form>
```

just to create a [link](https://tanalin.com/en/blog/2013/03/link-button/) that looks like a native button. With no ability to open it in a new tab/window, see the target URL in advance or copy the URL, and with a need to work around the [Chromium](https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=108690) and [WebKit](https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=30103) bugs that cause adding a question mark even though the query string is empty.

That’s amazing, CSSWG.
