Microsoft’s browser has to resort to trickery to Google will offer all the features in both Gmail and Google Calendar. In fact, it is what has had to GDR1 IE11 in Windows Phone 8.1 update. Thus, the websites of Mountain View will look the same in Microsoft’s operating system in iOS and Android.
Internet Explorer 8.1 for Windows Phone 7 will include iOS and Android user agent in order to get the full features of HTML5 in mobile web applications like Gmail or Google Calendar. For some time this part was out of Microsoft support Major Websites for your browser and Internet Explorer 11 was not going to allow this.
And the truth is that it has gone pretty well. In the photo we show can be seen as the before and after Gmail on Windows Mobile Phone. The differences are obviously significant.
Since I discussed recently improvements would upgrade to Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1. Well, in Microsoft wanted everything to work perfectly and so have faked user agent in IE11. Their only chance was that the services of Google to look just right were pretending to Mountain View to be entered from differently from Windows Phone operating system.
Yes, it may seem unprofessional, but having introduced many improvements in your browser, if you cannot access to basic service such as Gmail used, the work will have been for nothing. So, you see, even in such a professionalized and technologically advanced world such as software, sometimes you have to resort to such basic tricks and deception to get what you want.
