I am trying to get the results from a site using REST call like this: http://server1/sites/mysite/_api/web/lists/getByTitle('list title')

But it's giving me that Internet Explorer Cannot Display This Feed, I tried with Chrome it works, but the xml is just not formatted and not readable as it would be in explorer with collapse and expand functionalities.

Any thoughts?

try this: http://www.spdoctor.net/Pages/message.aspx?name=internet-explorer-cannot-display-this-feed

should change the settings to display what you want

(edit) scratch that thought, I just re-read your post, and I dont think this is what you asked


To open REST API Query url http://server1/sites/mysite/_api/web/lists/getByTitle('list title') in browser like internet explorer Goto Internet Options -> Content->Feeds and Web Slices->Settings-> uncheck "Turn on feed reading view". It will show the results of REST API Query as like in browsers like Google chrome
