Ever wondered what the view is like from the ISS?

Note: You must use IE for this to work, Mozilla (and other Gecko based browsers) has an outstanding bug which prevents the effect on this page from working and Netscape 4 is basically a worthless browser for doing "cool" things.

I've done some crazy stuff with SVG and DOM2, but naturally IE does not support any DOM2 or SVG without a plugin.

With simple XHTML markup though, once again some crazy stuff with DOM2, but once again IE sucking prevents it from working it it.

Roy, which bug # in BugZilla are you talking about? "Outstanding" bugs are few and far in between in the Gecko codebase, and I'd like to know which one you are referring to. :)

The absolute coolest thing... I'd say my Dynamic Tables code (http://www.vladdy.net/WebDesign/DOM_Tables.html)
Next coolest goes to my Tooltips (http://www.vladdy.net/WebDesign/Tooltips.html) - works in both IE5.0+ and Gekko browsers. It took way more effort to make them work in IE though since MS does not support the DOM2 Event Model...

I have a hard time find the bug number but the reason it's unresolved is that I set it with a low priority when I reported it. Mine is the only script I know of experiencing the problem and frankly it's not that useful a script so I couldn't justify giving it more than a really low priority. I suspect it'll get fixed some day as a consequence of fixing some other bug or an update to some subsystem.

The coolest thing I've seen with javascript is my own site! :)

(IE only - of course)

i'm quite proud of this (http://www.brothercake.com/games/physjig.shtml) (also IE5 only, due to another unsolved bug in mozilla, namely events don't pass through clipped regions)

Just a *bit* selfrighteous, don't you think? :rolleyes:

Wow, that's all really cool stuff. I like the sun going in and out of the clouds like that and that satelite view of the Earth ownz. The 'clean-looking' tables were cool too.

You guys rule. ;)
