How can we condition the IE8 browser to render a web page that IE7.

Although it is said that Internet Explorer 8 structure is created on earlier versions, and complies with web standards, many pages are designed to run as expected (high compatibility) on Internet Explorer 7. Compatibility issues web pages the new browser there. After I installed it, I noticed that some of your blog posts no lack of content, no pictures, no titles and other elements. This error can be solved very easily rendering by using the new functions "Compatibility View". This function looks IE8 web pages using the IE7 rendering support. At the end of "Address Bar" (URL) EXIT button to this option. Looks like a piece of paper torn in two.

If you do not want to always use the button "Compatibility View", you can set your browser to always run this way, or you can set the "Compatibility View" permanently, favorite websites.

compatibility view settings

Option can be found in "Tools" -> "Compatibility View Settings".

The above method may be related applied by the user who has installed IE8. Another way you can force to turn pages in compatibility IE8 IE7, you who made the site. Webmaster / web designer can use a command line meta-contentIn the header of web pages.

<meta content="IE=EmulateIE7" http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" />

HeaderWill look like:

   1: <html>
   2: <head>
   3:  <!-- Use IE7 mode -->
   4:  <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />
   5: <title>Titlu Pagina Web</title>
   6: </head>

We can not know how IE8 will evolve at the moment, if we take into account that the browser is currently in the Beta 2 development stage. IE8 has a number of new features, and as I noticed, it loads web pages much faster than IE7. Who knows in the future maybe the final version of IE8 will be a real competitor with Firefox on the browsers market.
