The Problem with Native JavaScript APIs
by

Publisher: O'Reilly Media
ISBN/ASIN: B008MYLMHG

Description:
Nicholas Zakas provides a case study to show how different browsers can develop native APIs for the same specification and still end up with different interpretations. You'll discover how these APIs can tie your code to specific browsers, forcing you to upgrade application logic whenever new browsers and new browser versions are released.
