Fix site display problems with Compatibility View - Microsoft Windows HelpWow thanks for the info. I am very new to Surface and windows 8.1 - how can I add a website to the compatibility list?
It still helps. The point is that the infinite loop brings the entire BROWSER to its knees so you have to close the application. Without the infinite call loop, you can at least just close the tab and go elsewhere.I already tried to add the web page to my compatibility list and it didn't work so all I got was a blank page, which is why I didn't mention it
That doesn't seem to be the crux of the problem, at least in this case.This is the string used by S2
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; ARM; Trident/7.0; Touch; rv:11.0) like Gecko
This is the string used by a Windows Phone
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 10.0; Windows Phone 8.0; Trident/6.0; IEMobile/10.0; ARM; Touch; NOKIA; Lumia 810)
Many sites look for ARM and if it's found switch to Mobile. Other are looking for the token MSIE and it's not found they assume that the client is not using IE.
As you can see the string used in IE11 doesn't contain anymore MSIE.
