In the IE, this method may not be supported.So you can use the following method.
if(event.preventDefault) {
else {
 event.returnValue = false;
// Simply above this
 event.preventDefault ? event.preventDefault() : event.returnValue = false;

According to above, event.preventDefault() just like return false;
