Tip: IE 9 Compatibility View Mode Switching On and Off

After installing Internet Explorer 9 on my computer, I found that my site somehow looks weird and different from what I can see in chrome, firefox or IE8. So I did an investigation on this issue and finally came to a solution which is to switch off the compatibility view mode in IE 9.

When compatibility mode is on, websites designed for older browsers will often look better and problems such as out-of-place menus, images, or text will be corrected. Computertipsfree.com, however, is not made for older browsers and therefore it looks weird when you try to view it in compatibility mode.

So, to switch on/off the compatibility view mode in IE9, there’re 2 ways to do this:

Method 1: IE 9 Compatibility View Mode Switching On and Off

Simply click the compatibility view button beside the address bar in IE 9 to toggle on and off.

Method 2: IE 9 Compatibility View Mode Switching On and Off

Press F12 to open the developer window, from the browser mode combo box, you can select any browsing mode you like. It supports the legacy IE 7 and IE 8 browsing mode as well. You can also switch through the document mode if you have problem viewing a page. The Quirks mode often solve my problems viewing some pages, for example, the Google Webmaster Tool page.
