HTML5 touch events for mobile web

With more and more touchscreen devices, HTML5 brings to the table a set of touch-based interaction events. Because mouse-based events aren’t able to adequately capture the range of interactions possible via touchscreen,  touch events are a welcome and necessary addition for web developers.

The Touch Events are a set of low-level events that represent one or more points of contact with a touch-sensitive surface, and changes of those points with respect to the surface and any DOM elements displayed upon it or associated with it.

Represents an event that occurs when the state of touches on the surface changes.
Represents a single point of contact between the user and the touch surface.
Represents a group of touches; this is used when the user has, for example, multiple fingers on the surface at the same time.
Contains convenience methods for creating Touch and TouchList objects.
