Research: jQuery Passive Event Listeners




Chrome DevTools is reporting an issue with some of my scripts or third party scripts utilizing passive event listeners. At first glance, it appears that this is an issue for providing the best user interaction experience. I am going to dive in to this topic and see what I can find out.


There are quite a few articles that I read on this subject after getting a notice of a scroll event listener warning in Chrome DevTools. This one looks like it is going to be a pain to track down and resolve. jQuery doesn't appear to default to passive event listeners for scrolling and it may require I correct previous and future scripts with raw JavaScript.
