Ever have trouble getting your Internet Explorer-specific Web applications to work with Mozilla?
no, to me and the people I know it’s always the other way round:
develop comfortably on mozilla/firefox and then the headache porting to MSIE
has some good reference material such as working with XML documents and core DOM API – but seems cluttered by references to NS4 and IE5. NS4 is not even on the radar anymore and IE5 is fading fast, diving almost 4% this year along. there are many legacy techiques, such as document.write, which I just cannot see justifying any more.
when I think cross browser issues I think:
IE6 Win -> FireFox/Mozilla Win/Linux/Mac -> Safari Mac -> Opera Win/Linux/Mac
Actually I develope Standards based xhtml /html /css in firefox and need very little adjustment in IE6. If you know the bugs, you can work them out much faster in dev than later.
