Hi WebYaST hackers,

Yesterday I fixed this JavaScript browser detection bug:
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=529931
and just wanted to tell you my observations.

We spend a lot of time writing good, clean, DRY, easily readable ruby code
and
even have tools like Flog, Flay and Heckle(1) to check its quality. All this
is great, sure.
But on the other hand we just dump JavaScript code into the users browser to
do some magic but don't care for quality there.

There's still a difference between writing code oneself and including
upstream code ;-)

iirc, the browser test was written by someone else who, apparently,
didn't have TestSwarm.

Btw, TestSwarm (http://testswarm.com/) is open now:
