    Here's how to enable the new IE12 Trident mode in Internet

    Microsoft has moved ahead with Internet Explorer's new forked rendering engine, including it in the latest 'official' build of Windows 10. A new flag in the browser allows users to control when it is used. The new engine is Microsoft's attempt to break away from legacy features in Internet Explorer.

    Microsoft earlier decided to 'fork' the Trident rendering engine into two parts. 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 called "Edge 12.0" will handle it instead.
    By default, Internet Explorer will decide which engine is used, however, that can be changed on a new "flags" page included in IE12, called "Experimental Features", which is located by typing "about:flags" into the address bar. Other versions including IE11 on Windows 8.1, do not have this page.

    Yep I figured it was another version of Edge mode which in it's self is pretty lame,
    I prefer to run in the same mode as the browser # which is another reason I stick with ie10
    Set a browser mode and it pretty much stays as that instead of always using Edge or now ie has to figure out what to use :/
    That should slow loading down it never sifted through compatibility view list very fast and is why I do not use them.
