The isSameNode() method is supported in all major browsers, except Firefox.
Note: Firefox stopped supported this method as of version 10, because the method has been deprecated in the DOM version 4. Instead, you should use === to compare if two nodes are the same.
Note: Internet Explorer 8 and earlier does not support this method.
