Is Your Website Ready for Windows 8 and IE10?

I had to pay my property tax this month. I have been trying for a week at the county website www.LACountyPropertyTax.com. I got consistently a runtime error- day after day. After a week I started to doubt what was happening- even the government cannot afford that much inefficiency. I decided to attempt to visit the site from another machine. The reality is- if it wasn’t about taxes, I wouldn’t have done the effort.

On my Windows 8 machine and browser IE10 I get the following runtime error screen. I tried to debug with F12 developer tools.

A runtime error is a software or hardware problem that prevents Internet Explorer from working correctly. Runtime errors can be caused if a website uses html code that is not compatible with the web browser functionality.

On the Windows 8 machine I tried to debug in IE10 requesting the IE10 Compatibility View.

On Windows 7 IE9 I don’t get any error. I was able to pay my taxes.

There are many Windows 8 machines and IE10 browsers out there.
