Speaking of IE11...

It joins the rest of the major browsers and adds support for "border-image". I just updated that compatibility validator message today for the next v14 update. :)

The only change we had to make was to a browser sniffer to detect IE11, since it reports that differently.

Yes, I recall researching that as well. The default user agent reported by IE11 is:

Code: Select all

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Trident/7.0; .NET4.0E; .NET4.0C; rv:11.0) like Gecko
Here is a good link with more info on why they chose that:
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ieinternals/arc ... ebkit.aspx
This string is deliberately designed to cause most UA-string sniffing logic to interpret it either Gecko or WebKit. This design choice was a careful one—the IE team tested many UA string variants to find out which would cause the majority of sites to “just work” for IE11 users.
