    Question Javascript version, and dual browser compatibility.


    What is the newest version of Javascript?
    I have heard that, there is a new version of Javascript, which is designated for fully dual browser compatibility.
    Is it true, if it is true, any online reference?

    there's actually a few different flavours of javascript but I think you're probably asking about ECMA script. You can download the standards specs from here -

    dunno about this "full dual browser compatability" stuff tho'

    For the "dual browser compatibility", I mean that, is there any version of js, in which both IE and netescape are fully supporting

    There is JS that both NS and IE fully support - it is a subset of JS1.2. The fact of the matter is that NS4 does not support the DOM and because of that, it does not support many aspects of javascript as a whole. Making a new JS version will not change this. NS6 implements the DOM quite nicely (better than IE5.5 actually) and will be much nicer to program for if and when NS4.7 dies its deserved and anticipated death.
