Description Maksim Orlovich 2006-02-08 23:36:44 UTC

Currently, the editing toolbar on WikiPedia is guarded by the following:
if (!document.selection && !is_gecko) {  

which disables the functionality on browsers other than IE and Mozilla family. However, 
the functionality it relies on, textarea.selectionStart/.selectionEnd is supported in 
other browsers families as well. I've implemented it in konqueror for 3.5.2, there is an 
independent implementation in development builds of Safari, and Opera 9 preview 1 appears
to support it too.  It would be appreciated if this test used object-detection insread, so 
non-mozilla/non-IE users weren't locked out of this functionality.
