FIX: IE Document Mode changes to IE 7 while opening a remotely hosted ASP.NET (or MVC) website in Internet Explorer 8

A recent issue I faced while I deployed my ASP.NET MVC application on production server.

I hosted my MVC application on a web server having IIS 7.
While I tried to access that website on the server itself using "localhost" in URL within IE 8 browser, it was getting displayed perfectly. But when I tried to access it remotely in IE 8 browser, the layout got disturbed, and it was appearing too messy.

I did a lot of investigations, and could found this is because by default browser was opening the website under "IE 7" document mode.

In order to prevent this, I did following changes <system.webServer> section in web.config file of my application, and that successfully resolved this issue:

        <clear />
        <add name="X-UA-Compatible" value="IE=edge" />

  1. Really nice blog.ASP.NET MVC 4 is a framework for building scalable, standards-based web applications using well-established design patterns and the power of the ASP.NET and the .NET framework. This new, fourth version of the framework focuses on making mobile web application
    development easier.To begin with, when you create a new ASP.NET MVC 4 project there is now a mobile application project template you can use to build a standalone app specifically for mobile devices.
