W3C DOM HTML Compatibility table updated

The W3C DOM HTML Compatibility table has been updated, too. All in all browser differences are becoming markedly less; we're actually approaching the day on which there will be no (well, OK, few) incompatibilities left.

@media Ajax 2007

Well, @media Ajax has been an excellent conference. In fact, it was the best conference I've attended so far (OK, I haven't attended that many, but still). The main reasons for its excellence were the tight focus on one single subject, coupled to a stellar-class line-up of speakers (including humble me). I mean, at which other conference would we have had the opportunity to see Brendan Eich shoot screaming monkeys into the audience and Douglas Crockford admit that maybe (just maybe) JavaScript is slightly less misunderstood than it was a few years ago?

W3C DOM Compatibility Core table updated

After more than two years I have resumed working on the DOM Compatibility tables. Just now I finished the Core table, which now includes information for IE 5.5-7, Firefox 2.0, Safari 3.0 Windows, Opera 9.5b, iCab 3.0 and Konqueror 3.5.7 . I removed IE 5.0 and IE Mac because these browsers aren't important any more.

I'm also in the process of creating new test pages which (I hope) will be easier to maintain than the old ones. I uploaded all new Core test pages, but I think that a few of the other tables refer to these, too. So I'm afraid that some test page links will be broken in the other tables; eventually I'll get around to fixing them.

I'm not sure exactly when I'll update the other tables, but I hope to get them finished before the end of this year.

CSS compatibility updated

Yesterday I finally got a new Linux machine with Konqueror 3.5.7 installed. (If that is not the latest version, please don't tell me. I don't want to know.) As a result I could finally start updating the compatibility tables, and as usual I started with the CSS ones.

While I was at it I upgraded the information to Firefox 2.0, Opera 9.5b and Safari 3.0 Windows. In general, compatibility has improved slightly.
