Animation script not working in Chrome and Safari

  • # May 20, 2009 at 2:00 pm

    Hi all,

    I am pretty new to javascript and i customized an animation script to fit my needs. It all works fine in FF and IE but i just noticed the it doesn’t work on Chrome and the iPhone which is Safari if i’m not mistaken. Any ideas why it’s not working on those browsers?

    Here is the url: … direction/

    I figured it out. I was all about the way chrome and safari do an http request. Here is the post that i found with the explanation:

    And here is the code change:
    FireFox only:

    var xmlDoc=document.implementation.createDocument(“”,” “,null);
    xmlDoc.async = false;

    Chrome + FireFox:

    var xmlhttp = new window.XMLHttpRequest();“GET”,xmlsrc,false);
    var xmlDoc = xmlhttp.responseXML.documentElement;
