Over the past several years, Mozilla's collection of developer documentation
for its own web browsers has turned into a wiki-editable reference of web standards for developers working with all
browsers, hosting a comprehensive, no-nonsense reference of HTML
, the DOM
, and more
. If you find yourself turning to this reference frequently, dochub
will tell you exactly how many browsers will support that new standard. Still want to use that shiny new standard? Modernizr
will let you detect missing features, and load tiny bits of code
to make old browsers support the latest HTML5 hotness.

What the Heck is Shadow DOM?
Browser developers realized that coding the appearance and behavior of HTML elements completely by hand is a) hard and b) silly. So they sort of cheated. They created a boundary between what you, the Web developer can reach and what’s considered implementation details, thus inaccessible to you. The browser however, can traipse across this boundary at will.

- If you're like me (who am I kidding; you're not) then you have trouble motivating yourself to work out, get to the gym, or ask for low fat milk in your latte. Aside from prizing sleep over mindless physical exertion, the idea of staring at a blank wall while stepping to the oldies drives me to depression. If only I could combine the burn of calories with the burn of a six foot rawhide leather whip cracking against my corpulent behind. < via Salon
