This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

After a mousedown event has been fired at the element, if and when sufficient pressure has been applied to the mouse or trackpad button to qualify as a "force click," Safari begins sending webkitmouseforcedown events to the element.
