    Node.isSameNode()

    Obsolete
    This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

    The Node.isSameNode() tests whether two nodes are the same, that is if they reference the same object.

    Warning: This method is no longer implemented in recent browsers.

    // Instead of using
    node1.isSameNode(node2)
    
    // use
    node1 === node2 // or
    node1 == node2

    Syntax

    var isSameNode = node.isSameNode(other);
    
    • other The node to test against.
