    Developers and debugging methods !

    Apparently neither developers nor site managers know the debugging methods !

    Just open the following pages with Internet Explorer (having clicked the check box : Display a notification about every script error in Tools, Internet Options, Advanced) :


    Then some pages becomes almost impossible to read...
    To improve the quality of the web, I suggest keeping a « List of Dunces » by extending the previous list.

    Thanks in advance.

    To improve the quality of the web we would have to delete 90% of all websites, scrap HTML 5 and go back to the development of XHTML 2, and prevent 99.9% of mankind from ever writing HTML code.

    90% seems like a defensive estimate to me, actually.

    I find JsLint the best debugging tool.

    But the best is the enemy of the good (Voltaire) and excessive obsession with perfection is often counter-productive. No normal user elects to display notification of every script error, or would have any idea what that means.

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.

    Thanks for your enthusiastic responses...

    Why insert scripts that do not work ? Normal users do not do not take advantage of all the pages !

    It is amazing that famous address that claim to teach leave open such errors.

    These days, w3schools – which takes up 50% of your examples – is more infamous than famous, really.

    they probably did work. many scripts expire from lack of object-detection and defensive coding, dynamicdive for example. others break from cross-compatibility issues like one script patching [].map and another one expecting the native [].map. In short, many times the developer has no indication that anything is wrong when they test the script and initially publish it.

    The list is not close... I have more examples in France.
    But some other address like The New york Times are no exception to the rule !
    The editors still have progress to make ...

    And you want us to list all the websites that have JS errors now? You’re probably better off listing the 1% of sites that have no errors.

    Out of my mind. I just made it up, you know? I just wanted to cynically express how naïve your intention is to list all websites with JS errors in hope they will fix them and improve.
