  1. Updating Menu scripts for iPad/iPhone and Android devices

    Mobile devices such as the iPad, iPhone or Android tablets are pretty on par with modern desktop browsers when it comes to rendering JavaScript, though that's not to say they do so without hiccups. One of the more crippling limitations is mobile devices' lack of support for the onmouseover/out events of JavaScript, which if you think about is more of a fundamental "shortcoming" of touch based devices in general rather than a deliberate act of omission.
