JavaScript Tutorial (Prototypes)

Specifications and compatibility table (fetch)

So far, I don’t like it :confused: . Maybe I’ll grow to like it but it seems too simple and I’m not a fan of the color scheme(s).

TBH apart from colour scheme and “related articles” box I’m not seeing the changes…

Methods/ functions/ objects still have properties. syntax, parameters, return value, example, browser support and the related methods/ parent drop down column.

I mostly use MDN for quick reference and Google dev for more in depth use cases.

Then if I want to take a really deep dive I look at your JS tips of the day :slightly_smiling_face:

Ive also been thinking of doing up an MDN cheat sheet for all things JS.

Maybe like a table with parent Object, properties (read write ect), methods (args, return val, example)…

I find it more useful to be able to look at a sheet of paper pinned near my monitor than scroll through MDN.

Seems okay to me; since the redesign doesn’t seem to get in the way of the content any more than the previous design did.

Search behaves more like a filter than search… which is a bit annoying because I had to consult one of my own repos to find the name of Element.getClientRects. (I knew it was plural, but thought it had Bounding in the name like getBoundingClientRect.)

The redesign has some nice elements to it. I do miss some of the quirkiness the first MDN had years ago. With each redesign, they go further into being more “professional” :luggage:
