Why base2, you ask? Well, if you were watching he’d already released base1 which was a way to extend objects in an more object oriented way (extending them). The whole point has little to do with that first library, although I might guess that he has some of those features baked in.
I saw his comment not too long ago, and was curious what he was up to …
Why is base2 Important?
Why indeed. Because he’s fixing things. Future-proofing things just like John Resig was going on about and implementing the standard ways of doing things for browsers which don’t (largely, read: MSIE) and so there’s little to no documentation. Because the standards document it.
Ideally, you could use this with code written one way (no more multiple ways of handling events since IE still doesn’t do the standard) and one day you could actually remove it.
The way it should be. He says so much in the comments.
Kudos to Dean, again.
Ok, I better stop before I get accused of kissing up. If I haven’t already crossed that line.
