IE 11, Invalid character

I mostly test my applications in Chrome but lately, I received a complaint from a user regarding a particular feature not working inside of IE.

The cause is the template literal syntax that I was using which IE does not support(which Edge does).

var foo = `this is a test with ${bar}`;

Another quirk or interesting thing which I encountered was that IE would completely throw a fit if you have a ‘_blank’ target-property on your <a> tag that has a href which calls a javascript function:

<a href="callFoo(bar)" target="_blank">Foobar</a>

Again, once you remove the target attribute, it all works like a charm.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
