Chapter FRIDAY EVENING. Introducing Java... > JavaScript and Browser Compatibility

JavaScript and Browser Compatibility

When JScripts are processed by the WSH, browser compatibility issues do not affect JScript programmers.

However, browser compatibility has always been a major issue for JavaScript programmers. The two most popular Internet browsers since the mid-1990s have been Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Netscape’s Communicator. Microsoft and Netscape traditionally have had different opinions as to how browsers should work. As a result, Netscape Communicator versions 2, 3, and 4 performed differently in many situations than Internet Explorer versions 3, 4, and 5. HTML pages and JavaScripts often behaved differently when asked to do the same thing on either browser.
