ResourceLoader: Increase coverage of isCompatible() in startup.js
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I'm sure I already reported this but, but I can't find it, so either I have a serious problem to remember things or the database.

./resources/startup.js should load jQuery and everything else only for compatible browsers. But currently only IE < 6 is blocked, everything else is still only a TODO comment. In the meantime jQuery has changed, so is no longer compatible with some old browsers [1].

You should block:

  • FF < 2
  • Safari < 3
  • Opera < 10 (this has changed, see also bug 31691)
  • Chrome < 1
