That UA string suggests it isn't Internet Explorer at all, supporting ionFish's theory that it's a bot. Windows NT 9.0 gives it away. Even Windows 8 only calls itself Windows NT 6.2. It also makes no reference to Trident, IE's rendering engine. It should be more like Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/5.0). See ...

As of right now developers would be doing this partially out of curiosity and partly to get ahead of the game. After all, as you've pointed out, the user base is tiny right now and even at full saturation the maximum numbers of users will be limited to those running IE9 and Win 7 (or newer). I think it is a good idea, but shouldn't be a priority, to start ...

This article from MSDN should tell you everything you need to know.

Checking the IE9 website, this is the ONLY thing relating to URL case. 400 BAD FILE REQUEST: This error occurs due to input of incorrect URL by the user, like we unknowingly use uppercase letters while specifying a URL rather than lower case letters and sometimes use of incorrect punctuation causes this error. I do have a hunch though: since they're all ...

One of my coworkers started exhibit the symptoms (random requests for http://www.vistaprint.com/scanImageUrl from IE8), so I hopped on her computer to figure out what was causing the issue. The problem appears to be due to a malware IE add-on called Yontoo v2.051. I doubt anyone intentionally installs the software, but, among other installers, it is ...

This can be annoying. The reason this happens is because the browser treats the # in the url as an anchor and then tries to find the html element who has an id that matches that anchor. Eduardos answer about using Javascript is the solution. You can use jquery or javascript to change the url hash when a link is clicked to something that does not exist. ...

The key metric is percentage of repeat visitors. Web applications usually have a high percentage of repeat visitors. A visitor is more likely to do a specific set of tasks on the app, so if you provide a deep URL that saves 3 clicks, he'd appreciate it. If you provide custom shortcuts for each user based on what he is does often, that would be even better. ...

This meta tag should do it: <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" value="IE=9"> You can also send it out as an HTTP header

When a well behaved web browser encounters cached content, it generally still requests the head portion of the cached document so that it can ensure that the content hasn't changed since it was last cached. Just as long as the last-modified or content-length changes, then you shouldn't have a problem. Issues arise when your web server has explicitly told ...

Just have that page send out anti-caching headers every time a user loads it. This will force the browser to get a fresh copy of the page every time. You can do this without affecting the caching of the other pages in the site. You can use meta tags: <META HTTP-EQUIV="CACHE-CONTROL" CONTENT="NO-CACHE"> <META HTTP-EQUIV="PRAGMA" ...

This is due to the "Same Origin" security policy. The “Same Origin” policy limits the access of one window to another. The reason behind that is security. If you have blabla.com in one window and gmail.com in another one, then you’d not want a script from blabla.com to access or modify your mail or run actions in context of gmail on your ...

This is being caused by a problem with your server configuration for your SSL: When I checked the SSL for your domain funraise.me using this SSL Installation Diagnostics Tool, it indicates the DNS resolves to IP address 107.21.216.112 When I used this tool to check the SSL for the IP address 107.21.216.112 however, it listed the domain onmodulus.net ...

For initial testing in IE this may be sufficient, but there will always be some differences between how a site loads in an emulator to the real thing. The amount of testing you do should really be strategically influenced by the target user base and the amount of traffic the site receives. By using a web analytics tool such as Google Analytics or Piwik ...

It's not. Compatibility mode is just emulation and not the browser versions themselves. I occasionally run into differences that aren't noticed till I look at it on a test system. Microsoft did come out with VMs that you can install on Windows that do contain the real versions of older IE.

Anchoring with ids is a feature of html4 of which many of the new browsers try to support, practically id behave like anchor name: The id attribute may be used to create an anchor at the start tag of any element (including the A element). In the same document says: The id and name attributes share the same name space. This means that they ...

There's an MSDN blog post explaining how to build "reputation" for your download, but overall this is at least somewhat out of your control. It seems to be a rather unpopular feature(also see comments there), and I expect it'll receive some adjusting or even removal soon. I hate to say this, but is it out of the question to put a notice on the download ...

or simply you can use CSS - Conditional comments for IE http://www.css-tricks.com/how-to-create-an-ie-only-stylesheet http://www.javascriptkit.com/dhtmltutors/csshacks.shtml which will be quiet simple if you are a newbie hope it helps.

You can use document compatibility mode. <html> <head> <!-- Mimic Internet Explorer 8 --> <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE8" > <title>My webpage</title> </head> <body> <p>Content goes here.</p> </body> </html> You can also set this as an HTTP header. ...

Probably you are using and incorrect/malformed doctype tag. This is the usual trigger for this behavior.

Hanselman also did a good writeup about pinned sites.
