There are a lot of organisations that still have to run web apps made for Internet Explorer. Despite releasing its new Edge browser, Microsoft understands it needs to continue supporting Internet Explorer for some of its enterprise customers. That's why it has made improvements to its Internet Explorer 11 Enterprise Mode tools.
Here's what Microsoft has added to Internet Explorer 11's Enterprise Mode:
- Support for HTTP ports
Brought on due to popular demand, users can now apply Enterprise Mode compatibility features to sites with HTTP ports. You can specify a HTTP port directly in your Enterprise Mode Site List XML. You can also use the new Enterprise Mode Site List Manager tool to add HTTP ports.
For Windows 7 or 8.1. users, you'll need to install the Internet Explorer 11 October Cumulative Update or later to use this new feature.
- Web Application Compatibility Lab Kit This kit introduces users to Enterprise Mode and Enterprise Site Discovery. It features walkthroughs on how to configure and set up Enterprise Mode in addition to Enterprise Site Discovery, the F12 developer tools and the Enterprise Mode Site List Manager. The kit also comes with virtual machines for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Enterprise and Windows 10 Enterprise. You can download the stripped down version that doesn't come with the virtual machines.
