Set X-UA-Compatible via .htaccess
It’s relatively well known that you can set
X-UA-Compatible headers with HTML.. here is how to do it with a bit of
Let’s say you have this defined in the head section of your web pages:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1">
That method works fine, but it’s also possible to set
X-UA-Compatible headers via .htaccess, which can help to decrease page load times and shave off a little bandwidth.
Just add the following slice to root .htaccess:
<FilesMatch "\.(htm|html|php)$"> <IfModule mod_headers.c> Header set X-UA-Compatible "IE=Edge,chrome=1" </IfModule> </FilesMatch>
Of course you can change
IE=Edge,chrome=1 to whatever is required. Compare with the HTML meta tag to better see what’s what. Also, remember to edit the
FilesMatch directive to suit your needs.
