Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Course and browser requirements, part of Working with Data on the Web.
To follow along with these course the requirements are pretty straight forward. From a tools perspective you'll need a code editor and a number of browsers for testing. You can use whichever code editor you prefer. I'm going to be working with Aptana on the Mac. A free editor for both MAC and Windows. Most of our browser demonstration and testing will be done using pretty current version of standard base browsers like Google Chrome. As some of the focus in this course, is on the more recently released technologies. You probably shouldn't depend on the technique demonstrated if your client need to support legacy browser like Internet Explorer 6.
