While previous editions of this book focused on the then predominant Netscape Navigator browser, the swing of the browser market share pendulum currently favors Microsoft Internet Explorer. At the same time, Netscape has accomplished the admirable task of reinventing its own browser in light of rapidly advancing industry standards. As a result of both of these trends, this massively revised and expanded fourth edition treats both brands of browsers as equals as far as scripters are concerned. You hear my praise and dismay at various scripting features of both browser families. But empowering you to design and write good scripts is my passion, regardless of browser. Therefore, the book contains details about proprietary and standard implementations to equip you to choose the development path that best fits your content's audience. If you detect any bias of mine throughout this book, it is a desire, where possible, to write scripts that work on as many browsers as possible.

The print version of this book ships with a CD-ROM which includes several chapters not included in the text. In addition, the CD is supposed to have lots of sample scripts and other materials referred to in the book. This is not just a "bonus", it is essential to using this book. Where is the digital equivalent of the CD? Without it, much of this book is worthless.

Ordered this book back on 19 Dec 2010, they shipped the wrong book on 22 Dec 2010. Asked for someone to call me about three weeks ago, but to this day even with me asking four time and giving them a number that I'm at 24/7 they have refused to call with no explaination. I do not know at this time if they are even going to ship me the book I ordered. They do not seem to understand simple English. I have stated a number of times that I still want the book I ordered. I was forced to return the book they sent in it's original package marked as "Return to Sender" because they were so slow in giving return instructions. I am sorry, but I will not pay to return a book that I did not order when the seller takes so long to give instructions for the return. THey also didn't mention that they would reimburse the return cost until three days after I had put in in the mail as mentioned above. All I can do is hope that I get the book I ordered or that they refund my money, But I want the book. At this point I wish that I could set my rating as ZERO STARS, but the system will not allow that.
