New in JavaScript 1.7 - MDC

New in JavaScript 1.7 - MDC



Their are some interesting things that are being brought forth in version 1.7, but how are we going to handle this? Browsers have a tendency to stick around for a long time. Take IE 6 for example. If someone wants to take advantage of the features in 1.7, they will have to write two sets of code, one that works for javascript 1.7, and one that works for older versions. Why would one do that? Especially in a working world where a developer has to meet deadlines. Does IE 7 support Javascript 1.7? If not, it might take even longer 1.7 to be supported in major browsers other than Firefox/Mozilla.
