The examples linked from this page expand upon a technique published by solarDreamStudios called footerStick, that allows for the footer of a Web page to appear either at the bottom of the browser window or the bottom of the Web page content – whichever is visually lowest.
Because the original footerStick used absolute "bottom" positioning for the footer element, it was susceptible to a bug in Firefox/Mozilla that made the footer appear in the wrong position when first visiting a page. By using a slightly altered method, footerStickAlt avoids this behaviour. You can view a full explanation here.
