    A colleague of mine has just received a Windows 7 tablet, that hopefully I'll get to play with soon. So that obviously could run IE9/10.

    Do you care about IE8? Everything I'm doing is HTML5, which means IE8 is out of the question anyway. And then addEventListener works perfectly well in IE9.

    Much as I love The Guardian, main reason for asking is I have set up some javascript to also run drag and drop on tablets. Hopefully, it doesn't matter as I assume tablets don't use IE anyway. Or do they?

    if (document.addEventListener) addEventListener("touchstart", touchHandler, true);
    do I need an else attachEvent here??? Hmm.
    Microsoft tablets (surface, surface RT) use IE10. Apple and Android tables use various versions of webkit.

    A proper Leftie should say "You're running a capitalist browser, feck off".

    Developer tools in IE10 reports The Guardian site as in "Document Mode: IE8 Standards" - I assume that's something that happens automatically based on the content.

    The site works fine for me though.

    looking at the IE8 version (as I support tulip that really, really hates IE9) no.

    Anyone else finding things like this with IE9?
