DOM Features You Didn't Know Existed #DOMFeat

We get excited over new HTML5 APIs and new CSS features, but many developers aren't aware of the diverse array of native DOM features that are available -- many of them supported as far back as IE6.

I'll discuss and show examples demonstrating practical use cases for features like:

  • insertAdjacentHTML()
  • getBoundingClientRect()
  • scrollIntoView()
  • contains()
  • activeElement
  • selectionStart/selectionEnd
  • normalize()
  • - And lots more!

I'll also point out how developers can research different DOM features along with their browser support, which often is not available on commonly-known references like caniuse.com.
