Sorry, a bunch of you got caught during a server update. I had no idea this was going to get posted today. Everything should be back to normal now. :)

wow, something useful from Ajaxian!

question 9 is incorrect:

9. FireBug…
is a Javascript DOM Framework
is a Javascript Editor
is Firefox’s Bug Database
is a Javascript Widget Framework

the answer is “none of the above – it’s a testing tool, damnit”

I based the answer to that question off of FireBug’s website:
“…Firebug integrates with Firefox to put a wealth of development tools at your fingertips while you browse. You can edit, debug, and monitor CSS, HTML, and JavaScript live in any web page…”
But now that I’ve actually downloaded and ran it, I see that there is no editor included. Sorry about that! I’ve updated the question.

Pretty fun quiz, though I don’t get what the checkboxes next to the questions are for.

Phewww, around 70%, will I be excluded from Ajaxian?
Those 3rd party libraries are killing me!!!

For #15, wouldn’t all the answers be correct or are we using the price is right rules?

According to the test the XMLHttpRequest object is not the only cross-browser clientside way for making (a)sync server requests. Are they referring to IE’s proprietary ActiveX alternatives? Because they are not cross-browser (unless we are counting between browser versions…). My score was 70%, not bad, not great either :)
