Case Sensitivity in In-Page Anchors
Code: browsers, fuck Internet Explorer, HTML5, yak shave
As I’ve been working on Chibrary, I ran into a small cross-browser compatability issue: only some browsers treat anchors as case-sensitive. The call numbers that uniquely identify messages would be perfect for linking to in the middle of a long discussion, but some of them only differ by case.
So I wondered: is that acceptable in linking to an anchor inside the page? A quick experiment with Firefox worked fine, but I wanted to be thorough.
Because Internet Explorer is a Failure, That’s Why
Code: browser support, browsers, failure, Firefox, Internet Explorer, support, web
About once a month since Firefox came out and was promptly recognized as a six-gallon bucket of awesome I read a blog post about how developers are lazy, shiftless bastards because they don’t want to support Internet Explorer anymore. Most recently I read Brian Reindel make this claim, so I’m going to pick on him while I rebut this insult.
