What is Adaptive Quirks Mode and how does it compare to IE’s Quirks Mode?

Quirks Mode can solve issues for many websites.  Unfortunately, there are two issues with Internet Explorer which prevent Quirks mode from being effective:

  1.  The inability to properly determine the correct time to invoke Quirks mode (based on the where and how a page invokes a DOCTYPE).
  2.  The lack of granular control beyond the domain level without a code change.

The Adaptive Quirks Mode solves both of these problems by providing an intelligent, adaptive Quirks mode that analyzes the code on a webpage and makes a decision at runtime when and how Quirks Mode should be invoked for a specific page or pages. More information can be found in the Adaptive Quirks blog post.
