Browser and Features


Progressive Enchancements

Big'ol list of greatness:

  1. Browser Support: IE 7+, FF 4+, Chrome 1+, Safari 5+, Opera 10.5+
  2. Fastest Selector Engine (Sizzle only as a fallback to legacy browsers)
  3. Feature, Browser, Platform, Rendering Engine detection
  4. Small: 129KB uncompressed; 39KB compressed and gzipped

There are 2 different builds of Hilo for every version:

  1. The 'Legacy' Build, which is intended for those who'd like to support IE9- and several old browsers.
  2. The 'Normal' Build, which is for those who doesn't want to support the legacy browsers.

The legacy build is (currently) 176 KB uncompressed and 46 KB (UglifyJS compression), while the normal build is 108 KB uncompressed and 28 KB uglified.
