You can polyfill the CustomEvent() constructor functionality in Internet Explorer 9 and higher with the following code:

        // a : While a window.CustomEvent object exists, it cannot be called as a constructor.
        // b : There is no window.CustomEvent object
        new window.CustomEvent('T');
        var CustomEvent = function(event, params){
            params = params || { bubbles: false, cancelable: false, detail: undefined };

            var evt = document.createEvent('CustomEvent');

            evt.initCustomEvent(event, params.bubbles, params.cancelable, params.detail);

            return evt;

        CustomEvent.prototype = window.Event.prototype;

        window.CustomEvent = CustomEvent;
