This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The exitPointerLock asynchronously releases a pointer lock previously requested through Element.requestPointerLock.

To track the success or failure of the request, it is necessary to listen for the pointerlockchange and pointerlockerror events.
