I like IE8 and it is my default browser. But it, like many new versions of software, does not play nice with some website coding. As example here is www.GEOLadders.com, a website I use to log my mountain bike rides and have some fun seeing my ride in its map overlay view.
The problem is the two red boxes are where some playback controls should be, and were before upgrading.
The solution for this website and many that have display or control issues is the Compatibility View option built in to IE8. The compatibility is only for webpages it is activated for (not global) and is a simple 2 click process to turn on.
Now when I view my course I have the playback controls expected – now if I could just get some more time away from the computer and on the trails….
