Here at MDN, we try to avoid outright deleting content that might be useful to people targeting legacy platforms, operating systems, and browsers. Perhaps your target audience is people that are using older hardware, for example, and can't upgrade to the latest and greatest browsers. Or for "reasons," your company is required to use very old software and you need to build Web content that runs on that software. Or perhaps you're just curious about the history of an obsolete feature or API, and how it worked.
There are many reasons older documentation can be useful. So, we've established this area into which we can archive older documentation. Material in this Archived content zone should not be used for building new Web sites or apps for modern browsers. It's here for historical reference only.
Note to writers: We need to try to keep the subpages here organized instead of all dumped into one large folder. Try to create subtrees for categories of material. Also, only move pages here that are extremely obsolete. If anyone might realistically need the information in a living product, it may not be appropriate to move it here. In general, it may be best to discuss it in the MDN Web Docs chat room before moving content here.
- Archived Mozilla and build documentation
- Translation in progress
- Archived open Web documentation
- The documentation listed below is archived, obsolete material about open Web topics.
- B2G OS
- Firefox OS is the mobile operating system developed by Mozilla, based on Linux and Firefox's powerful Gecko rendering engine.
- CSS3 is the latest evolution of the Cascading Style Sheets language and aims at extending CSS2.1. It brings a lot of long-awaited novelties, like rounded corners, shadows, gradients, transitions or animations, as well as new layouts like multi-columns, flexible box or grid layouts.
- MDN "meta-documentation" archive
- Here you'll find archived "meta-documentation"; that is, documentation about how to write documentation on MDN. The articles here are obsolete and should no longer be referenced; we are retaining them here for reference while we migrate some content to new places, but very little of this is useful.
- Social API
- De Social API is een nieuwe API om het voor web browsers gemakkelijker te maken om te integreren met sociale media diensten. Waneer een sociale media aanbieder is geimplementeerd voor Firefox wordt het mogelijk voor de browser om in-chrome bedieningselementen en informatie gerelateerd aan die dienst te laten zien. De volgende artikelen leggen uit hoe een sociale media aanbieder geimplementeerd kan worden.
- Archived theme documentation.
