  • No, this makes the browser render as if it is ie8 which is missing a ton of functionalities such as html5. Ie8 is not supported. In general you would be much better off removing that tag and fixing your app as needed as this is not doing you an favours.

  • t is possible to load the map on your location in 7 but requires a lot of work. That said, V7 is reaching end of life and you should be moving off of it to V8.
