Subject Google Closure Events (was Re: [FalconJx] progress update)
Date Sun, 31 Mar 2013 04:20:28 GMT
I read up a little on Google Closure Events.  I was hoping to find some
information on why it takes that much javascript to implement a brand new
event model when it appears (at least from my perspective) that the only
rogue browser is IE8.

I think I'm going to forge ahead with my custom approximation of events in
IE8 and maybe I'll discover why Google Closure Events are better.  I would
rather use a DOM Events API surface since that's what AS has and folks are
used to.
