@alexbuzzbee I'd add that I think modals have become a useful and dominant enough UI pattern on The Web (particularly in the form of "lightboxes") that I believe they should be native to HTML.
Maybe there's an attribute on links and buttons for that. Which could also set a side of this element to place it on, or maybe even pull in entire webpages for UIs like Stripe or OpenStack Horizon.
@alcinnz Perhaps add a 'modal' attribute to <button> that opens a modal document iframe-style? Or perhaps a modal element which is given by id?
@alexbuzzbee I like it!
Actually, there is already an element for dialogs, lightboxes and modals, but it's still not supported everywhere (ex. It doesn't work on Firefox for android)
