Abstract

It was the best of times; it was the worst of times. It was the age of Netscape; it was the age of Internet Explorer. The new event handlers before us made it the spring of hope. The fact that browsers implemented event handling differently left us in a winter of despair. But in recent years, the sun has shone clear and bright, and the event-handling API has standardized across browsers (most aspects of the API, anyway). The ultimate goal of writing usable JavaScript code has always been to have a web page that will work for the users, no matter what browser they use or what platform they are on. For too long, this has meant writing event-handling code that managed two different event-handling models. But with the advent of modern browsers, we developers never have to worry about that again.
