I think you have folks have an awesome site. I frequently refer learners to it. But there is a matter that I would definitely improve: differentiate between IE and Edge when it comes to browser support. For example on https://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_input_type.asp There are many differences between the two browsers on that issue. See https://caniuse.com/#search=input type And that's just one example. In CSS3, there plenty differences as well. Windows 7, which doesn't accept Edge, is still widely used in the corporate world, and that is going to remain for quite a while. So those users should be regarded as critical users for web developers.
Dear all: I have just started learning js and jQuery. I am confused about browser support to js. On one hand, there seems to be a general agreement that js is the most popular language for website design. On the other hand, It's stated that js is not equally supported by browsers, especially old browsers, and that some user browsers might even turn down js. jQuery is a better alternative for browser support. Is this true about problems in js' browser support? And if it is, how could a language with such a draw back become the most popular?
1. I was using the page http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_html_dtd.asp to reveiw html tags available within each DOCTYPE, but found that I had to simultaneously review each individual tage on the page http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_menu.asp in order to determine browser support. For example, the HTML5 <menu> tag is supported in html5 but is not supported in any browser, the <nav> tag is not supported in IE <= 8, the <datalist> tag is not supported in Safari or IE < 10. I suggest that the html:DOCTYPE page include the Browser Support icons (shown below) next to each tag name so that one single page includes all the essential information. But I would suggest taking the icons on setp further in that it isn't sufficient to have s single icon for IE; there needs to be an icon for IE 8, for IE 9, for IE 10, and for IE 11 since the feature support in each of these is considerably different (IE <= 7 have pretty much left the market, so no need to separately reference those). To do this I'd suggest using a smaller set of icons in two rows, one for FF, Opera, Chrome, and Safari, and a row for the four IE icons. 2. I have to develop for both PC browsers and mobile devices. It would be helpful for these listings to include information regarding mobile browsers. For example, what are the feature differences between the Android browser and Chrome. Does the Chrome browser support all the features of Chrome for the PC; ditto Safari on iOS devices. thanks
