Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group

Overview#

Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG) is a community of Interest in evolving HTML and related technologies.

Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group was founded by individuals from Apple, the Mozilla Foundation and Opera Software in 2004. Since then, the editor of the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group specifications, Ian Hickson, has moved to Google. Chris Wilson of Microsoft was invited but did not join, citing the lack of a patent policy to ensure all specifications can be implemented on a royalty-free basis.

Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group has a small, invitation-only oversight committee called "Members", which has the power to impeach the editor of the specifications. Anyone can participate as a Contributor by joining the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group mailing list.

Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group is on GitHub at https://github.com/whatwg
