Testing in IE8

So you’ve created a swanky new webapp. You have used all the latest frameworks and a bunch of frameworks and it’s looking swell on your chrome browser. And now you decide, that its time you opened up that windows machine and tested it on IE. Windows 8 machine booted up with IE10 and everything is still workalicious. IE9 ditto. IE8 is when shit hits the fan.

What I did to get my application to work on IE8

  • !IE headers
  • Trailing commas
  • Click event
  • HTTP Patch
  • evt.target.classList
  • Always refer to object child as object[‘child’] thank object.child
  • add JSON2.js
  • IE document mode
  • getjSON caching
