[solved] Do I have to enable support for IE11 just to tell people to not use it?
Hello, IE11 sucks. My company uses both IE11 (for legacy apps which will be replaced at some point) and Chrome, with IE11 being the default, unfortunately. I would like to tell people who launch my Quasar app to switch to Chrome if they launched it with IE11. Do I have to enable IE11 support just to do that, as per here: https://quasar.dev/quasar-cli/cli-documentation/supporting-ie#Installation-of-IE-Support?
Presently, without following the above, IE11 just shows a blank page, presumably because the polyfill wasn’t used. Is there a down side for the Chrome experience or size of project if I enable IE11 support? Or is there something I can do in IIS itself to present a message? Hmm. I just thought of that, so I’ll go google that now.

@rconstantine in IIS there is a rewrite module and ARR module. You can redirect user to your other “IE11switch.html” page depending on header value “User-Agent”. You can search for a something from this substring “compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/7.0;”. This is logged in IIS logs in “cs(User-Agent)” field.
This is a tutorial how can it be done:
Thanks, dude! I’ll write an html page and set that up.
Got it. Thanks. I had to adjust the match URL, however, since the one in the example gave me a circular redirect which resulted in a timed out operation and message of “This page can’t be displayed”. So instead of matching * for the URL, I’m NOT matching my html page which is *noie.html.
