Internet Explorer For Windows Phone To Become More CompatibleFor those having issues with the Internet Explorer on Windows Phone 8.1 and the way it renders websites, your troubles might soon be over as the upcoming WP 8.1 Update 1 is set to change that.

According to Microsoft, a lot of websites don’t recognize IE as a mobile web browser and shows desktop content instead, resulting in a much different web experience compared to Android or iOS. However, thanks to the WP 8.1 Update 1 (coming to developers next week), which among other changes also brings different User Agent string and webkit prefix support, there was a 40% user experience improvement among 400 top mobile sites that Microsoft has tested.
