How to avoid the pitfalls of Internet Explorer 8 with IE8 Linter
Few months ago the total users of IE6 and IE7 fall below 1% in the world. So now web designers can ignore IE6 and IE7 when designing a website. But unfortunately, the number of IE8 users are still at large and most of the clients want their website compatible with IE8. The list of incompatible CSS properties could change our lives (Flex-box, box-sizing…).
So what should you do when clients say âit is necessary that the site is compatible with IE8â and design must look modern. Your solution is the amazing tool called IE8 Linter.
IE8 Linter is a small Web application whose role is to scan the website that you designed and find out all the CSS properties unreadable on IE8. Its operation is simple: enter your link in the URL field, press the button and wait for the results!
IE Linter not only show the CSS errors for IE8 but also how to avoid those problems with often a link to a resource on Github.
