How does a MAC PC use a web app develope

By paull ·
What happens when a web application is developed on the NT and accessed on the ibook of MAC?
I know the MAC uses the browsers in a different way, there are no cookies there and the temp files are preferences....

Thanks

How does a MAC PC use a web app develope

It really all depends on how the applications was written. I wasn't aware that Mac browsers didn't support cookies. If the App requires them (most serious e-commerce apps do to track sessions) then they might not be able to use them.

However, if the app was written to pass all information, including sessionID on the URL or in the form POST then the Mac should still be able to use it without incident. That is, assuming that the App does not use any JavaScript/VBScript not supported by the browser you are using. (Come to think of it, Netscape 4.x on Mac did support cookies.)

In short, it really depends on the developer and what he/she was testing with. I've worked on systems where Netscape 2.x was the testing standard. Those apps worked on anything down to Lynx. :)
