JavaScript Developer's Dictionary Summary

JavaScript Developer's Dictionary by Alexander J. Vincent

JavaScript Developer's Dictionary covers all the essential functions, methods, and objects of JavaScript in an easy-to-find, logical order.

JavaScript, and each different version of JavaScript, interacts very differently with each variety of Web browser, leaving Web developers scrambling to write code that will work in all the major browsers. JavaScript Developer's Dictionary brings all these variants into one volume, breaking down every object in the JavaScript language and how it applies to each browser.

Wherever possible, the book also provides workarounds for earlier versions of JavaScript and for direct inconsistencies. The emphasis throughout this book is on compatibility across many versions of Netscape and Internet Explorer.
