Tools like Can I Use... is great for checking whether a feature is compatible with which browser. But is there a tool which parses an entire CSS and/or Javascript document and highlight which part is compatible with a browser you choose.

Ideally, I would simply paste my code in, select a browser (IE8) and see which parts are not supported.

Not quite what you are looking for but before checking for compatibility with one or more browsers I would check that you meet the standards.

There are a list of indispensable checking tools on the W3C site that you might check out.

This list includes a CSS Validator that will check your CSS against the standards rather than specific MS "Features" I would say that it is always a good idea to start by making your code standards compliant. JSLint will do the same for your JS. Both will tell you where the problem(s) are as well as what.

Once you are meeting the standards there is a much higher chance that any given browser will work.

  • I do appreciate your answer but I'm afraid it is not what I am looking for. "Once you are meeting the standards there is a much higher chance that any given browser will work." - this is simply not true unfortunately. For example, background-size: cover; is a totally valid (as tested by the CSS Validator you suggested), but it will not work in Internet Explorer 8. – dayuloli Jan 27 '15 at 6:10
  • Which is why I said "More Likely" rather than will - unfortunately there are still a lot of non-compliant browsers about, (most easily spotted by the initials MS at the front). – Steve Barnes Jan 27 '15 at 10:55
