Is Your Site Having Problems with IE9? This Quick Fix May Help.

If you your web site is not working properly in IE9, a temporary workaround is to tell IE that it should run in IE8 compatibility mode. To do this, place the following meta tag in the header of the page or pages that are a problem:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8" />

Please note that this MUST be the first tag in the header section (after the <head>).

This should get things working until you find and properly fix the underlying problem.

Internet Explorer 9 is out!

It’s been an exciting month for a techie. The iPad 2 was recently released and looks awesome. Firefox 4 is scheduled to be released next Tuesday. And Internet Explorer 9 has just been released last Monday night! I’d like to take a moment to talk first about my impressions on the new browser and then discuss how Microsoft’s latest built-from-scratch browser will change websurfing from the perspective of websurfers. My next post will discuss the impact of IE 9 to web content publishers.

The first thing I noticed about IE9 was how fast it is. Compared to IE8, it is a speed demon. But what about compared to, ahem, good browsers?

This will be the home for such articles. If you are already a subscriber to Technology for Managers or Technology for Mortals, thank you for visiting. I hope you will benefit from the content here as well. This blog will contain material written from the perspective of a technical person. I may at times post similar content to my other blogs. If I do, the content will be modified to reflect the perspective of the intended audience.
