This post focus on how web developers can reliably write code that adapts to cross-browser differences. “Internet Explorer 9 reduces these differences and enables developers to use same markup across browsers. Enabling same markup means supporting right features to make same HTML, JavaScript, and CSS "just work". Yet enabling same markup on the web is an n-way street. Each browser must provide the right features, but developers also need to properly detect and use those features when they’re available. With respect to properly detecting features I'll share examples of issues and best practices I've seen on the web. Most importantly I'll offer patterns that can help you rewrite similar code to take advantage of the same markup. For now I'll focus on more basic examples to illustrate the core concepts, but future posts will cover more complex examples in greater detail,” notes Tony Ross on IE team blog.
