    Internet Explorer 11 introduces Enterprise Mode which allows you to set compatibility view settings for particular websites. But what is the difference between Enterprise Mode Vs Compatibility View that was available in previous version of IE?

    Well they basically do the same thing, but Enterprise Mode does it better. Compatibility View tells the browser to display the website’s HTML and CSS in a way that previous versions of IE would, but does not execute code (like ActiveX controls) in the way that previous versions of IE would. So for a better level of compatibility, use Enterprise mode.

    That’s the theory of Compatibility View Vs Enterprise Mode. In the real world, you will find that some websites work better with Enterprise Mode and some work better with Compatibility View. This will be a trial and error thing.
