I guess checking for TransitionEvent in window can be a handy little helper but never a stand alone feature test. Not for a bit of browser sniffing anyway. Is my current level of understanding JS…

Simply doing a console.log(window) is quite interesting and opens a whole world to explore (for someone with nerdish tendencies anyway). It also shows why one shouldn’t clutter the global scope more than it has been already by creating additional variables and functions in it.

How very convenient it would be to be able to run several (older) versions of the browser ensemble.

By the way, according to the Mozilla spec only Firefox itself is using the new approach. But none of the other modern browser showed the old event constructor, so they might’ve been moving ahead of what the documentation states.
