DOM support

A few years ago I created a page for testing browser support of different DOM properties and methods. As it was just a testing tool for a particular project I never made it publicly available. I can across it the other day and thought it may be useful to other developers here it is DOM Browser Support.

DOM Browser Support

This page tests your browser for DOM (Document Object Model) support and allows you to compare it to other popular browsers. The first column after the property name shows your browser result.

The tests used are very simple and results should only be used as a guide. Be aware of browsers that only partially support the property

These days with all the Ajax and JavaScript Libraries around worrying about browser support is a thing of the past or at least something left to the library. I hope this is useful to someone.

JQuery

One of the many cool additions to Drupal 5 that I have only recently discovered is JQuery.

jQuery is a fast, concise, JavaScript Library that simplifies how you traverse HTML documents, handle events, perform animations, and add Ajax interactions to your web pages. jQuery is designed to change the way that you write JavaScript.

I managed to get cool little drop down menu working with just a couple of lines of code for a site I am developing.
