Assuming I'm understanding correctly, I think the technical answer is "no". HTML5+JavaScript, however, are fully capable of hover and click events (mouse in, mouse out, double click, etc, and there plenty of frameworks to further support gestures, if you so wanted).

I'm not quite sure I understand the question, though, since that has been available since I started working on the web 10+ years ago.

Maybe you can elaborate?

This helps reduce the dependency on plugins but I was wondering if there are any widgets or tags in HTML 5 that can process click events for instance. Maybe a better way to put it is" are there any new features in HTML 5.0 that at least come close to what flash plugins do? Other than just streaming video or audio?
