Me: Modern browsers are so consistent, I'm sure by now working with audio in JavaScript isn't a nightmare

Chrome: lol

And this is the story of the first JavaScript Library I'm including in my website

My guiding philosophy on this project is "use as little JavaScript as possible" so it hurts, but also Howler.js solves the problem cross browser audio very effectively

Below the thunders of the upper deep,
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides; above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous and secret cell
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the lumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages, and will lie
Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
— "The Kraken" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1830
