Updated Split bookmarklets (works on IE6)

July 25, 2004

Thanks to the many comments I had about the split bookmarklets, I updated them and here they are:

the main changes are:

  • they work on on Internet Explorer 6 (many thanks to this anonymous commenter)
  • Firefox throbber is stopped once the frames loading is finished
  • the scrollbars appear only in the frames and not in Firefox (on some sites, it still does not work...)

I'm by no means a JavaScript wizard but I find quite amazing the difficulties to get such a simple javascript code to work on different browsers. With that little experience, I'm even more impressed by web applications using JavaScript like Gmail (Oddpost is also worth to take a look but they made their job easier by only targeting Internet Explorer).
