Earlier this year at its Build 2019 developer conference, Microsoft announced IE Mode for its upcoming Chromium-based version of Edge. Now, you can finally use it.
The feature allows you to open a webpage in an Internet Explorer tab within the Edge browser itself. You’ll need to enable a flag called ‘Enable IE Integration’ first, and then when you have a page open, you can go to More tools -> Show this page using Internet Explorer to change the tab you’re in.
As many of you rightfully pointed out the last time we talked about the new Edge, this might be the feature that will push a lot of especially enterprise users to Edge – something I clearly didn’t take into account.
OMG! I’m still never going to use it!
It’ll be widely tested and adopted, anyone ignoring this will potentially lose access to a huge segment of the desktop market!
If I’m investigating new apps but have to manage two corporate browsers to make it work I won’t choose that app! I’m already buried in legacy apps that need multiple browsers, the more I can consolidate the better my work load, although I appreciate diversity delivers some viral immunity. Having too many browsers is just unmanageable, the best number I can imagine is one, and I’m free to choose!
