Comparison of JavaScript engines (DOM support)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The following tables compare Document Object Model (DOM) compatibility and support for a number of JavaScript engines used in web browsers.

For features that are fully supported (based on DOM Level 2 or DOM Level 3 modules that are under W3C Recommendation), an exact version number is given if it is certain that the feature was added in such version. DOM Level 0 and DOM Level 3 modules that are still under development are not included.

Explanation of tables[edit]

See List of ECMAScript engines for a full list.

Values[edit]

These indicate the level of support for the given item in each engine. By default, the most recent version of the engine is implied. However, a specific version number can be listed; when this indicates full support, it's the initial version of the engine fully supporting the item.

Value Meaning
Yes Fully supported
No Has never been supported
Partial Only some values are supported
Incorrect Not implemented correctly in all cases
Experimental May be incomplete or buggy
Nightly build Currently in development; full support is expected
Depends Only supported for the specified conditions
Dropped No longer supported

Trident Core (Fundamental) notes[edit]

  1. doctype — Prior to version 9.0, returns true when checked but always contains null.
  2. getElementById() — Prior to version 8.0 returned elements with name attribute set to value being found, not only id.[t 4]
  3. getAttribute(), setAttribute(), removeAttribute() — prior to version 8.0 returned, set, or removed, respectively, the corresponding DOM property instead of the string value of the attribute.
  4. AttributeNode.specified — Does not set specified to true if ownerElement is null.
  5. Node.isSameNode — Prior to version 9.0, only supported for XML documents.

Tasman Core (Fundamental) notes[edit]

  1. AttributeNode.specified — Does not set specified to true if ownerElement is null.

Gecko Core (Fundamental) notes[edit]

  1. insertBefore(), replaceChild(), removeChild(), appendChild() — Fails on Attr nodes.[g 1] appendChild does not work as expected for DocumentFragment nodes prior to 1.8.
  2. AttributeNode.specified — Prior to 1.9.1 does not set specified to true if ownerElement is null. Does not create Attribute Nodes for default values specified in the DTD.

Presto Core (Fundamental) notes[edit]

  1. getElementById() — Versions prior to Opera 9.50 returns elements with name attribute set to value being found, not only id.[p 1]
  2. URI attribute value — In versions prior to Opera 9, all URI attribute values are resolved to full URI. Hence the value from getAttribute() and getAttributeNode() could be wrong if relative URIs are used.
  3. Attributes that are not supported in the layout engine are still parsed and available through DOM. E.g. char and charoff are available under .ch and .chOff.
  4. In Opera 8.54 methods DOMImplementation.createDocument and DOMDocument.createElementNS both fail to accept any non-empty namespace URI. They work in Opera 9 Beta 2 and they may also have worked before (somebody with Opera 8, please check.) The symptom is that the namespaceURI property is null/empty and serialization gives wrong result.

WebKit Core (Fundamental) notes[edit]

  1. AttributeNode.specified — Does not create Attribute Nodes for default values specified in the DTD.

KHTML Core (Fundamental) notes[edit]

  1. AttributeNode.specified — Does not create Attribute Nodes for default values specified in the DTD.

Core (Extended)[edit]

The interfaces defined here form part of the DOM Core specification, but objects that expose these interfaces will never be encountered in a DOM implementation that deals only with HTML.

HTML[edit]

The interfaces found within this section are not mandatory. This section extends the DOM Core API to describe objects and methods specific to HTML documents, and XHTML documents. In general, the functionality needed to manipulate hierarchical document structures, elements, and attributes will be found in the core section; functionality that depends on the specific elements defined in HTML will be found in this section. Elements deprecated since HTML 4.01 are not listed. Some elements and attributes listed here are deprecated in XHTML 1.1. For example, presentation attributes, image maps, frames and targets.

Events[edit]

The interfaces found within this section are not mandatory. The first goal is the design of a generic event system which allows registration of event handlers, describes event flow through a tree structure, and provides basic contextual information for each event. The second goal of the event model is to provide a common subset of the current event systems used in DOM Level 0 browsers. See also DOM Events for details.

Views[edit]

The interfaces found within this section are not mandatory. A document may have one or more "views" associated with it, e.g., a computed view on a document after applying a CSS stylesheet, or multiple presentations (e.g. HTML frame) of the same document in a client. That is, a view is some alternate representation of, or a presentation of, and associated with, a source document.

Trident notes[edit]

  1. defaultView — Trident does not support the defaultView property for documents, but it supports another property with the same meaning which is parentWindow.

Traversal[edit]

The interfaces found within this section are not mandatory. Its interfaces provide easy-to-use, robust, selective traversal of a document's contents.

Validation[edit]

The interfaces found within this section are not mandatory. This module provides interfaces to guide construction and editing of XML documents. Examples of such guided editing are queries like those that combine questions like "what does the schema allow me to insert/delete here" and "if I insert/delete here, will the document still be valid."
