The Browser Compatibility API will support compatibility data on the
Mozilla Developer Network. This currently takes the form of browser compatibility
tables, such as the one on the
CSS display property page. The API will
centralize this data, and allow it to be kept consistent across languages and

The project started in December 2013. The initial goals and requirements are documented on the MozillaWiki_.
The beta v1 API is being served at https://browsercompat.herokuapp.com/api/v1/.
Alpha users are using the importer to find and fix data issues on MDN. A small
number of pages on MDN have been converted to use API-backed compatibility
tables. Beta users can view the new tables, and non-beta users see the
traditional wiki-backed tables. As the beta is expanded to more pages and more
users, the API is changed to handle new use cases. See the
issues page for
details of planned changes.
The v1 API uses release candidate 1 (RC1) of the JSON API specification, which
was released July 2014, but is currently undocumented. See the
v1 API docs_
for details of the API implementation.
