"Pointer Events unifies the web event model for touch, mouse, and pen input. It is designed to address concerns with the Touch Events spec."

This microsoft-proposed spec is already implemented in IE10 and IE11, patches are about to land in Firefox and work is underway in Chromium. More importantly, Microsoft is providing a polyfill that allows to use those events today in all major browsers.

jQuery lacks only minor modifications to be compatible with these events and their polyfill:

  • pageX, pageY and other mouseevent-related properties aren't passed on to the handler
  • event delegation doesn't work with pointerenter and pointerleave

A PR is on the way.
