Preparing Your Site for Navigator 5.0

Wednesday November 24th, 1999

Shelley Powers of inquiry.com has written an informative article on preparing your DHTML website for compatibility with Navigator 5.0 and the DOM standard. This one is definitely worth the read if you're interested in working to the DOM spec, but would like to keep a measure of backwards compatibility with older browsers.


#9 exactly!

i even can't understand why anyone would leave NS/MOZ-users out in the dark because of only supporting IE?!? When IE only had 10% marketshare every customer (we work in webdesign business) requested that it was also viewable in IE. So that will be requested with Mozilla, too!

Besides, the average-IE-lamer spends less time *and* money (buzzword: ecommerce) on the web (mainly because IE has about 100% marketshare in the low-end consumer business) - NS/MOZ-users are therefore much more important now and in the future.

Also, the high marketshare of IE is based on AOL using IE in it's app. That will likely change in the next 6 to 10 months. Why use a component-only product when you have a faster, smaller and more stable product *in source* in you company-/product-portfolio??

Hopefully... :))
