What Are Web Browser Objects?

In Chapter 19, "The Document Object Model," you learned about the Document Object Model, which dictates how your JavaScripts can access and manipulate aspects of the Web browser and the HTML document that it is viewing. The Web browser, whether Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer, exposes a collection of objects—these objects control just how much you can do with your scripts. (As you will see in the next section, both Microsoft and Netscape extend their respective object models with their varieties of Dynamic HTML, which greatly extends the number of aspects of an HTML document that can be accessed and changed using JavaScript.)
