Steps to reproduce

Edge (14.14393) currently responds to “hover:on-demand” and “any-hover:on-demand” on a touchscreen device (tested on Windows 10 Mobile on a Lumia).

The spec has changed recently to remove the “on-demand” value (see https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/commit/2078b46218f7462735bb0b5107c9a3e84fb4c4b1, https://drafts.csswg.org/mediaqueries-4/#hover and https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2016Feb/0041.html).

Test page: https://patrickhlauke.github.io/touch/pointer-hover-any-pointer-any-hover/

For spec compatibility, Edge should respond to “hover:none” / “any-hover:none” in the cases where it would respond to "on-demand".

    • Landed in Chrome, it will ship in M59. Edge is the only browser exposing this property now.

      Time to remove from Edge I think!
