    What data of Android TouchEvents can a webpage get from a browser running on android?

    Timestamp Type Code Value
    [ 46112.124651] EV_ABS ABS_MT_TRACKING_ID 000005b0
    [ 46112.124651] EV_ABS ABS_MT_POSITION_X 0000010f
    [ 46112.124651] EV_ABS ABS_MT_POSITION_Y 00000479
    [ 46112.124651] EV_ABS ABS_MT_PRESSURE 0000005f
    [ 46112.124651] EV_ABS ABS_MT_TOUCH_MAJOR 0000005f
    [ 46112.124651] EV_ABS ABS_MT_TOUCH_MINOR 0000002f

    Can all of these data of TouchEvents be seen by the browser? I'm courios if a website has the ability to see the details of the touches I make. Is there any way for a website to see all of these details?

    i doubt that a browser can read touch info. maybe what you select on a web page.

    curious as to why you ask?
