I was amazed with the amazing tools provided by Microsoft for Web developers and they hosted a website specially for these tools – modern.IE
So, I’m planning to brief about the Tools in modern.IE site in this post. Let’s see what’s in?
Website Tile – I love this feature! It allows to create Windows Tile in few seconds. Allows the user the user to pin the website to their Windows 8 start screen.
Virtual Machines – It provides virtual machines for different platforms – PC, Mac and Linux. Allows to test your website on different versions of Internet Explorer from your Mac or Linux.
Site Scan – This is a service which allows you to scan your website for coding problems. It helps developers to improve the performance of the site by fixing the pitfalls. It’s Open Source!
Compatibility Scan – It allows to scan your website for your code which is no longer supported and you can update it! This is very useful for outdated browser support especially for < IE 9+ versions.
Browser ScreenShots – It takes the screenshots of your web site in different browser on various platforms includes Mobile Safari and Android.
Developer Channel – Like Firefox and Chrome, IE started pushing nightly build with upcoming features enabled on it! It allows the developers to test the upcoming features in IE to take advantage of latest features!
It has much more in it including Community Support, MSDN resources etc., It’s all yours to explore the hidden information!
Happy Website – IE programming!!!
