Revision Content

Web development is comprised of all aspects of developing a web site or web application.

Selected Articles

Migrate apps from Internet Explorer to Mozilla
Doron Rosenberg tells you how to make sure your web applications work in both IE and Mozilla.
Using URL values for the cursor property
Gecko 1.8 (Firefox 1.5, SeaMonkey 1.0) supports URL values for the CSS2 cursor property. This allows specifying arbitrary images as mouse cursors — any image format supported by Gecko can be used.
Using Firefox 1.5 caching
Firefox 1.5 caches entire Web pages, including their JavaScript states, in memory. Going backward and forward between visited pages requires no page loading and the JavaScript states are preserved. This feature makes page navigation very fast, and is also referred to by some as bfcache for "Back-Forward Cache".
Browser Detection and Cross Browser Support
Improper browser detection can lead to web maintenance nightmares. Rethinking the basics of when and how to detect user agents is crucial to creating maintainable, cross browser web content. This article reviews several approaches to browser detection, their usefulness in specific circumstances to arrive at a common sense approach to browser detection.
Defining Cross-Browser Tooltips
Authors are used to using the alt attribute to create "tooltips" in Web browsers. The classic example is a "tooltip" of an image; when the user pauses the mouse pointer over an image, the contents of the alt attribute are displayed as a "tooltip." Gecko-based browsers such as Mozilla, Netscape 6+, and Compuserve 7 do not support this behavior.
