innerText x textContent in Mozilla Firefox

Mozilla Firefox doesn’t support JavaScript’s innerText property. Instead, the similar property used by Firefox is textContent. textContent is W3C-compliant property.

Differences between innerText and textContent are:

  • innerText is MSHTML’s proprietary.
  • textContent includes <script> tag on return value.
  • In Opera browser, innerText is modified to behave just like textContent.
  • textContent is supported in Internet Explorer 8 and 9.
