Yeah it has flaws. Every language and every environment does.
Remember in Cobol, you had to IDENTIFY the target environment!
In ForTran, God was REAL.... Unless you declared it otherwise.

The biggest issue I ran into was some code declared a variable with the same name as a global IE object, and that JavaScript variable did not really work, but the code failed in IE, and worked okay in Chrome.

That took me a while to debug.

But the little I do with HTML, I would honestly die a thousand deaths without JavaScript!
