Mozilla Device Orientation API MASTER RECORD

The Mozilla Device Orientation API enhances the responsiveness of web-enabled devices to detect the slightest changes to their physical positioning relative to gravitational pull. Its integration equips hand-held devices, such as tablets and smartphones, with the capabilities to sensor changes of orientation and trigger automatic rotation that retains display on upright position regardless the orientation of a device. The API’s desktop browser compatibility is currently restricted to Chrome and Firefox (Gecko), while its mobile browser compatibility supports Android, Firefox Mobile (Gecko), and Safari Mobile. It is currently a beta release and subject to future changes.
