Is there a book out there that can help qualm my overwhelmed frustration with this sort of thing? I know it sounds like I'm asking for a lot in a book, but as an example, when I had to jump into XML, I per-chance found an amazing book (Xml Family of Specifications) which is very thorough with wide-span coverage.
Some of the key concepts I am looking for in-depth coverage:
- Efficient DOM Access (Memory Usage vs Processing)
- Cache and issues
- AJAX - XMLHttpRequest
- Security Models
- Cross-Browser info would be nice to have
The last two items are something I think would really help me out. I've tried looking for Google Chrome's V8 engine source, but haven't found it on their repository yet.
Here are the books I'm currently considering:
Anyone have these and willing to comment, or other suggestions? Thanks everyone.
P.S. I know most learning comes through practice, but would really like a resource away from the computer.
P.S. I've looked through one of the books above at a bookstore, the others weren't in stock anywhere -- so I have looked through what I can, just trying to make a decision.
