If there's no previous script tag on the page, won't scripts.parentNode throw a (Cannot read property parentNode of undefined) error ?

also any for in loop should use hasOwnProperty to protect for any prototype modifications on the page.

1) You're always going to have a script tag on the page, because you need to add the script above somehow

Very true! Good point =)

You also might want to wrap this in a function to protect the variable namespaces.

As you don't use the object keys, maybe it would be better to loop an array instead (performance).

common approach.

How about now?

Shouldn't

}());

be

})(); ?

@harry1989 Both are valid Javascript. But if you want an opinionated answer, try Crockford http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taaEzHI9xyY&feature=youtu.be#t=33m39s

i use a window onload version. look https://gist.github.com/jswebschmiede/3660918

Similar to this one: https://gist.github.com/necolas/1025811 , although i find that one much better.

How about to pass the "document" as parameter into scope?

good

goood

i think pass 'document' into scope is better
