Internet Explorer 11 Forces Google.com Into Compatibility ModeWorst possible timing ever.

When you release a new build of web browser, you’d expect that at least the most popular sites are to load properly. Turns out, this is not exactly the case with Internet Explorer 11.

According to several reports, opening Google on IE11 might force it into a compatibility mode that messes up the rendering of search results. Interestingly enough, you can fix this by simply pressing Alt+X and unchecking ‘Use Microsoft compatibility lists’.
