Friday, September 14th, 2007p>History management comes up often, and Bertrand Le Roy of Microsoft has written about his experience building a cross-browser history management system.
Betrand details his foray into dealing with browser quirks of IE, Safari, and Opera:
So things are in a pretty grim state currently. It seems like we’re going back (pun intended). We used to have a collection of tricks that made possible an implementation of a history manager that worked pretty well in IE, Firefox, Opera and Safari. Now, we only have IE, Firefox and Safari Mac. I just hope this is only temporary and that both Apple and Opera repair their browsers soon.
