Ejemplo

<div id="prueba"></div>

<script>
  document.getElementById("prueba").addEventListener("click", function( event ) {
    // presentar la cuenta de clicks realizados sobre el elemento con id "prueba"
    event.target.innerHTML = "Conteo de Clicks: " + event.detail;
  }, false);
</script>

Compatibilidad con Navegadores

Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer 8 & 9 tiene problemas con elementos con un  valor background-color de transparent que es sobrepuesto a los demas elementos por lo que no les permite recibir el evento.

¿Cómo evitarlo?

Safari Mobile

En Safari Mobile 7.0+ ( también algunas versiones anteriores) presenta un problema cuando se da click sobre elementos que no son tipicamente interactivos como es el caso de un div. 

¿Cómo evitarlo?

  • Asignar cursor: pointer; en el elemento o uno de sus contendores.
  • Ubicar un attributo onclick="void(0)" al elemento o cualquiera de sus elementos contenedores, menos <body>.
  • Usar elementos interactivos (e.g. <a>) en lugar de no interactivos (e.g. <div>).
  • No usar  delegacion del evento click.

Lo siguientes elementos son considerados por Safari típicamente interactivos

  • <a> (but it must have an href)
  • <area> (but it must have an href)
  • <button>
  • <img>
  • <input>
  • <label> (but it must be associated with a form control)
  • <textarea>
  • This list is incomplete; you can help MDN by doing further testing/research and expanding it.
