the DOM-shim provides compatibility shims so that modern browsers behave as closely to DOM4 as possible.
-## [More details on wiki!][29]
+## Dev branch
-## But why use the DOM-shim?
+Actively being worked on.
-Take a look at the [unit tests without the DOM-shim][2] on your browser of choice. And now take a look at the [unit tests with the DOM-shim][3]. Now do it for some more browsers.
+### Tested browsers
-As you can see browsers fail in different areas. The DOM-shim basically just normalizes everything for you. This means you can write code that works cross browser without worrying!
+ - Firefox
+ - Chrome
+ - Saf 5.1
+ - Opera 11.52
+ - IE9
-> But jQuery/MooTools/Prototype/YUI/Extjs/etc/etc do that for me already!
+The DOM-shim.js works on those browsers
-Yes and they offer you layers and abstraction on top of the DOM. Guess what happens when you do that? You get slow code. Code written with the DOM-shim is on average is about 10x faster then code written with jQuery.
-
-## But how do I use it?
-
-Just steal lib/DOM-shim.js and throw it through your minifier of choice. Note the entire DOM-shim depends on ES5-shim.
-
-## Current shims
-
- - [v0.1][1]
-
-## Some features
-
-Use `.addEventListener`, `.contains`, `.textContent`, etc. today.
-
-Bonus:
-
- var c = new CustomEvent("magic");
- el.addEventListener("magic", function (ev) {
- console.log("custom events oh so easy");
- });
- el.dispatchEvent(c);
