Badass JavaScript - Has.js: UA Sniffing Is Dead. Long Live JavaScript Feature Detection! Pete Higgins and a few other JS ninjas have been working on a new library for doing JavaScript feature detection. Browser sniffing and feature inference are flawed techniques for detecting browser support in client side JavaScript. The goal of has.js is to provide a collection of self-contained tests and unified framework around using pure feature detection for whatever library consumes it. It is similar to Modernizr, but instead of testing for HTML5/CSS3 features, it tests for JavaScript features such as: ES5 array, string, and object featuresNative JSON supportNative console supportActiveXNative XHRSome DOM and event features There are a lot of tests available, with even more being added daily.

If(has("function-bind")){ // your enviroment has a native Function.prototype.bind }else{ // you should get a new browser. } Has.js was also designed to allow other libraries to include the tests and provide their own API. Has.add("some-other-test", function(){ return false; }) VexFlow - HTML5 Music Engraving. HTML. Ordering CSS3 Properties. When writing CSS3 properties, the modern wisdom is to list the "real" property last and the vendor prefixes first: Why is this method of ordering properties so commonly taught?

Here is what it would look like "the wrong way": Even doing it "the wrong way", won't the border radius be the same no matter what, forever? A quick investigation might lead you to conclude that it will, and this ordering of properties is rather nonsense. The Long Long Ago: None of the properties are supported, order doesn't matter.The Past: Only vendor prefixes are supported, order doesn't matter.The Now: Both vendor prefixes and actual property are supported. Here's a simple chart with this concept at work. Woah there, Cowboy The fact is, the ordering of CSS3 properties is important, and the above is fundamentally flawed.

Now, with HTML5 coming of age, there is a new feature that aims to replace the use of location.hash with a better solution: pushState. Over on the Spoiled Milk blog, Jamie Appleseed describes the API as “a way to change the URL displayed in the browser through JavaScript without reloading the page.” It works on the history object like this: window.history.pushState(data, "Title", "/new-url"); The last argument is the new URL.
