incompatibilities you have to work around is insane. Anything other than
a toy application will run in to at least one of these.
Even simple things like event handling are not portable:
function setEvent(oObject, sEventName, sEventHandler)
var fFunction = new Function(sEventHandler);
oObject.attachEvent('on' + sEventName, fFunction);
oObject.addEventListener(sEventName, fFunction, false);
