Does “ie8_length” reliably identify the UA as IE8?

    I notice that, under IE8 (8.0.6001.18702), there is an array attribute
    called "ie8_length" which very often looks to be equal to "length."
    True when compatibility mode is either on or off.

    Is the presence of this little guy a reliable tell that the UA is
    indeed IE8? And, in its absence, can I believe that the UA is not IE8?

    Thanks!
