Can I use Passive event listeners?

Compatibility table for support of Passive event listeners in desktop and mobile browsers.

Legend

Passive event listeners

- LS

Event listeners created with the passive: true option cannot cancel (preventDefault()) the events they receive. Primarily intended to be used with touch events and wheel events. Since they cannot prevent scrolls, passive event listeners allow the browser to perform optimizations that result in smoother scrolling.
