Microsoft releases updated Compat Inspector, checks your site for IE10 compatibility

Microsoft has released an updated Compat Inspector, which is a JavaScript based testing tool that checks your site for IE10 compatibility. Compat Inspector will display messages explaining potential issues and offers steps to resolve those issues.

“Compat Inspector reports patterns of interaction which cause issues in recent modes. This allows you to identify problems quickly without memorizing a bunch of documentation or searching through the entirety of your site’s code,” Microsoft states in an official blog post.

With the tool being updated for IE10 and released, Microsoft hopes developers will utilize it so they can see if Internet Explorer platform changes affect their site.
