Some of the best shortcuts are Alt+5: Force IE5 rendering mode, Alt+7: Force IE7 render mode, Alt+8: Force IE8 Rendering mode and Alt+7 Force IE9 Rendering mode.F12 launches Default developer tools . These developers tools allow users to control the browser mode: IE7, IE8, IE9 but also IE9 with 7 Compatibility view and IE8 8 compatibility view.
