Chap 8 notes

Let’s walk through Chapter 8 and note what has changed since I wrote that chapter:

Turning off JavaScript — in Win32/Firefox:

In Firefox, uncheck Tools → Options → Content → Enable JavaScript.

In  Firefox on OS X:

Firefox → Preferences → Content → Enable JavaScript

DOM Inspector:

Firefox 2 and earlier: The DOMi is included in builds since November 2003, as an option in the Windows installer. You must choose the “Custom” installation and select “DOM Inspector” in the “Choose Optional Components” window (see Installing Firefox on Windows for details). In at least some versions of Linux—Ubuntu for one—the DOMi is a separate package.

Starting in Firefox 3: The DOM Inspector is no longer included with Firefox but it is available as an extension

Google Maps API + Flickr Mashup (using KML/GeoRSS)

See slides.
