Event management (Definition)

The Netscape 4 event management suite provides event routing facilities.

The Netscape browser provides event management capabilities in version 4.0 that are different to those provided by MSIE. There are four management functions provided to facilitate this:

Without using these management functions, events simply fire at the default handler for the event. Now you can route the events to other handlers, invoking whichever ones you need. As such, this adds to the basic functionality.
