New For Internet Explorer 10: Compat Inspector

Available for IE9 as well.

Back in 2011, Microsoft has revealed a Compact Inspector feature for Internet Explorer 9, which allows web developers to quickly notice the IE’s platform changes and tweak sites accordingly.

Now, with the new Metro UI overtaking pretty much everything, the software giant has revealed a tweaked version specifically for IE10 and as you might have guessed, it does use Metro tiles.

In case you are using the developer preview of Internet Explorer 10, simply add the following line of code to your web site (before any other scripts) and click on the following widget

Don’t forget to include the script tags.
