I have received this question from my previous post ( Identifying the SignalR Transport Medium) , where I have explained how we can check out the different transport medium in different browser versions.  In the example I used Internet Explorer 11, and used the browser compatibility mode to show the same for lower version of browser such as IE 10, 11 9, IE 8 etc.

Here is how you can open the Browser Compatibility Mode in internet explorer 11.

From the menu item, Tools > Developer Tools, or press F12 on your keyboard to turn on the “Developer Toolbar
