View Full Version : Lost, sorry for the silly question. Need help finding information about NS scripting.

I was wondering if there are any websites that specfically deal with NS and javascript. I have coded a program but it is primarily IE scripting, and doesn't work well with NS.

I know the information is most like here somewhere to find.... but well, I am drawing a blank...

This doesn't have anything to do with specific code. Just coding NS in general

any help would be great.

Thank in advance

Somebody may pop in here and correct me but as far as I am aware NS is no more ....dead .....defunked.

You should be looking at browsers such as Mozilla .... er and whatever

Could be wrong, but AOL owned netscape or provided funds for it, they pulled out and since then netscape has been no more. The latest version of netscape (or maybe a few more before that) were based on mozilla.

Okay, I understand that....

so what do I do to make that my code are correct for mozilla base browers ???

Netscape stopped producing browsers not that terribly long ago. The current Netscape version is the last one. Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird takes over as the main Gecko browsers meant for end users.

There are a plethora of great documentation links in that sig above this post (liorean's in case anybody sneaks in before I'm done), but here are some of the most important for Gecko-compatible scripting:

Gecko DOM Reference (http://www.mozilla.org/docs/dom/domref/)

JavaScript Central (http://devedge.netscape.com/central/javascript/)

For the money, though, nothing beats the O'Reilly book JavaScript: The Definitive Guide (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00005UL4F/)
