How to Enable or Disable Internet Explorer Edge Mode in Windows 10

In August 2013, Microsoft announced that document modes would be deprecated starting with Internet Explorer 11. Any websites that need one of the deprecated document modes to render correctly will have to be recoded to adhere to web standards going forward.

By default, if a website calls for compatibility mode, then the older and more resource intensive Trident engine from IE11 will display the site, otherwise, the more lightweight and updated IE12 Trident engine Edge will handle it instead.

A new flag in the browser allows users to control when Edge mode is used.

Change Maximum Download Connections per Server Limit in Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer has a limit for the amount of simultaneously downloads per website or server.

  • Internet Explorer 7 and earlier versions limit the number of files that you can download at one time to two by default.
  • Internet Explorer 8 and Internet Explorer 9 limit the number of files that you can download at one time to six by default.
  • Internet Explorer 10 and Internet Explorer 11 limit the number of files that you can download at one time to eight by default.

In addition, if you visit a website with lots of images (and supporting files like CSS styles and Javascript), then you could have a slower browsing experience. On average, your browser could have to make several requests to the site’s server before it can finish loading the page.

This tutorial will show you how to change the maximum number of simultaneous download connections per server limit in IE8, IE9, IE10, or IE11 for all or specific users in Windows.
