IE8 Best Standards Support

You can also add the <meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=edge” /> edge value to your http headers by adding it to your .htaccess files like this:

BrowserMatch MSIE best-standards-support
Header set X-UA-Compatible IE=edge env=best-standards-support

How to remove the broken icon from IE8

Some sites show a broken site logo like this: Broken IE8 logo

The web developers can remove this broken compatibility view logo by including one of these three lines in the html header:

<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=edge” />
<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=8″ />
<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=EmulateIE7″/>

Living on the edge seems to be the best choice because then you don’t have to change anything when IE9 is released.
