Compatibility Mode Need Increases on Internet Explorer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently we have had a scattered number of IE users report that they can't view our website. After a long process of elimination we've discovered that the site suddenly requires compatibility mode to be viewed. We have also learned that other sites suddenly require the mode. Our site is new and built with new software. One user within our company was nearly certain the problem began after a very recent IE update. Anyone else heard of this? Is it a growing issue? Is Microsoft working on it (as far as you know)?

    The URL that we discovered it on is: www.falconfast.net

    Thanks . . . Rod Carter.

    IE10 on W8 is reporting (e.g. in its Developer Tools Console tab) Invalid DOCTYPE (presumably considering the UAS being sent with the request) and then goes on to give a long list of Script errors.  Clicking the Compatibility View button works.   Turning off CSS, e.g. with Alt-V y N  at least would give a user something to read.

    Try using the Developer Tools Validate tools or  Modern IE.
