With our extensive upstream implementation experience and our presence in standards bodies, we are immediately ready to help your organization navigate the standardization process or to turn standards into shipping code. As active members in the standards process itself, we are uniquely positioned to help push new standards forward while building consensus.
From our standards work we can highlight the following examples:
Accessibility: Igalia is co-chair of the ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) working group and active member of the Accessible Platform Architecture (APA) Working Group. Every day we work to make the web more accessible to all people.
CSS: We are members of the CSS Working Group where we collaborate in the definition of new CSS standards, with an important role on the new CSS Grid Layout specification.
We bring a particular focus to ensuring that new specification features evolve in a way that they can become real implementations, always seeking for ensuring interoperability between browsers. As a consequence, Igalia is an active contributor on the web-platform-test and Test262 test suites.
We have been sponsored by clients such as Bloomberg, Google, and Mozilla, to work upstream in all open-source browser engines turning standards into reality.
