This is a short recap of my presentation at TechEd, on . Video is here.
This talk was practical advice that came from solving several customer requests that started with: “my site broke with IE9”. The talk was short on slides, but included live debugging of several live sites (please don’t shoot the messenger if your site was demo’d).
Want to make sure that I give some credit to The Beebs (aka. Martin Beeby, MS Developer Evangelist in the UK). At MIX, he presented a similar topic, and I leveraged a code snippet from him – and you should take note of this. As you might know, you can manipulate an existing HTML page with the F12 Developer Tools. And Martin showed me a handy little snippet to add JQuery to an existing page, so then you can use the console window to issue JQuery calls to the live page – which can come in handy.
