And The Winner Of The QuirksMode addEvent() Recoding Contest Is…

Not me – and there is a slight twang of disappointment, but its hardly so very surprising – the competition was simply to recode addEvent, and my solution was for the entire class of event registration problems that plague all the current browsers and the associated memory leakage issues in IE.

The competition drove me to make my solution as thorough as it could be, and its happily powering the MetaWrap WireWrap behavior library and providing a reliable rock solid base. No matter what browser, no matter what event propagation mode I use, even when I mix them, its consistent across all the browsers I’m targeting.

And that makes me a very happy camper 🙂
