Internet Explorer Development Cheat Sheet

To make a web app work on across all browsers, most likely you will have to solve the fol­low­ing issues in IE:

Poly­fills

IE does not sup­port all the DOM spe­cific APIs. Hence, you will have to add poly­fills in your appli­ca­tion to sup­port var­i­ous API. I would rec­om­mend read­ing the fol­low­ing arti­cle for more details.


height 100%

For an ele­ment to have height:100%; in IE, all par­ent ele­ments must have height:100%;. Any break in the “chain” will cause IE to make its height: 0 and the ele­ment dis­ap­pears. I would rec­om­mend read­ing the fol­low­ing arti­cle for more details.
