I am working on Internet Explorer 8 presently and going to version up my project and using IE11. I tested my application on IE11, I found lot of layout issues. In order to fixed those issue,I added this tag in my aspx <meta http-equiv="x-ua-compatible"
content="IE=8" > and it is working fine for me. Now I would like to know, in case any higher version of IE comes, whether this tag would work with the higher version. Is Microsoft going to stop supporting IE8?
Quick help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Windows 10 comes with :
- a basically unchanged IE11 browser in which your site should work
- their new http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/microsoft-edge browser which support only "standard mode" and in which your site should have the same layout issues
Not sure about Windows 10 Mobile (only Microsoft Edge?)
Even if you have lot of issues, most of those issues could perhaps have a limited number of underlying causes such as https://css-tricks.com/box-sizing/? From now I would always take the time to see at least
what is the problem and how much work it would take to move my site forward rather than to just decide to stick with a legacy mode without giving this a closer look.

The meta Tag could enable to force a webpage to be rendered in the same way as older browser versions. It is supported at present, but I am not sure if it will be supported in the future.
you could try to find and fix the CSS layout issues using Developer Tools to make your web sites rendered well.

In January only the last version of IE supported by a given platform will be supported. For Windows 7, this is IE 11. Windows 10 will ship with both the new Edge browser which has no vestige of IE in it, and IE 11. The reason this currently works is existing
IE versions include the rendering engines back to 5.5 (6 isn't supported but 7+ is). Soon though this will only be supported through emulation in IE 11 Enterprise Mode.
Unless you are planning to limit use to only IE and no other browser such as Chome it is well worth examining upgrading the site before the transition deadline.

Appreciate your swift response.
What would be the best approach to resolve this issue Meta tag or CSS?
