Recent Chrome Update breaks IE emulation

    After latest Chrome update, Version 34.0.1847.116 m, I found that selectNodes() and selectSingleNode() are not defined in the Document object as returned by XMLHttpRequest.responseXML. The XMLDocument is already defined, so the logic in sarissa.js to set XMLDocument = Document doesn't fire. The solution is to duplicate the prototype functions in both Document and XMLDocument.

    I added these lines to sarissa_ieemu_xpath.js to fix this issue.

    if(XMLDocument !== Document) {
        Document.prototype.selectNodes = XMLDocument.prototype.selectNodes;
    if(XMLDocument !== Document) {
        Document.prototype.selectSingleNode = XMLDocument.prototype.selectSingleNode;

    Hey Todd,

    Could you please provide a patch or even just commit the change? I'd be happy to grant rights for the latter, been very busy so would appreciate the help

    Hi Emmanuil,

    Attached is a patched version of sarissa_ieemu_xpath.js. Tried to do this through SourceForge CVS but was having some trouble connecting.
