it is using web-based protocol handlers to open the file directly in word.
That's something that exists from a while now, for example, in ubuntu, you can create an html link like this to download a packet :
<a href="apt:wine" title="Get Wine">Wine</a>
The one used to open Microsoft Word is :
A good description on the browser support is here. Basically SP 2010 supports IE 7+ with 32 Bit and limited support on 64 bit.
Also another things is that default SharePoint master page sets the document mode to IE 8 Compatible. So even you upgrade the browser, it will work on IE 8 Compatible document mode.
It can be set with following code.
their is no dedicated browser for the SharePoint rather they call it supported. As per my experience best browser is always IE.
If you follow this Official documentation they mentioned Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, Internet Explorer 10, Internet Explorer 9, Internet Explorer 8 but with certain limitation with IE 11 in Edge Mode as well as Edge ...
You didn't say what environment you're using, but IE 8 is not supported in Office 365:
We are testing the same thing in our farm as well. we decide to turn on the Enterprise mode(EMIE). there are many things which are not working with IE 11 in native mode.
datasheet view will not work with IE 11

certain webpart properties can not modified.

I would also recommend you to upgrade ...
SP2 provided support for IE10. Since you're rolling out IE11, rather than placing the site in Compatibility View, try IE11's Enterprise Mode: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ie/archive/2014/04/02/stay-up-to-date-with-enterprise-mode-for-internet-explorer-11.aspx
Do you get the same behaviour if you edit from the browser rather than SharePoint designer?
If not, I'd guess you've got SharePoint designer set to something other than utf-8 as the charset.
You can change it by going to (in Designer 2010) File > General > Page Editor Options > Default Fonts.
Pick Unicode (UTF-8).
npOpenDocuments (formerly WSSFirefox) implements SharePoint & Office integration for non-IE browsers. Now Firefox & Google Chrome browsers can open MS Office documents directly, without saving them into temporary folder first. Check-in, Check-out & co are also supported.
This works for Office 2007/2010 & ...
Please refer following link for Browser support in SharePoint 2010, specifically refer for Mozile which says drag and drop web part feature is not supported.

You can use ConditionalExpression property to specify your conditional browser version.
<SharePoint:CSSRegistration name="/_layouts/solutionfolder/filename.css" After="corev4.css" ConditionalExpression="lt IE 7" runat="server" />
Got the answer by testing workarounds.
Just I need to write some lines of code in the OnInit() method of form.
ScriptManager sm = ScriptManager.GetCurrent(this.Page);

Yes, but it depends on how you set up the environment. If the Hyper-V VM has full network access (that is, you can ping it from your client), and if you set up your Web Application to use the machine name of the VM, you can just go to http://machineName. Or, if you set up a specific hostname that is not the machine name, or a full FQDN, you can edit the ...
For chrome the variable name is different, so following should help:
var key = e.charCode ? e.charCode : e.keyCode ? e.keyCode : 0;
if(key == 13)
e.charCode is used in Chrome
I dont think you will find any browser that works best because from my experience each browser has some shortcomings when it comes to SharePoint.
If you try "Open with Explorer" in Edge it won't work there as well.
You can't force browsers to support features that aren't available. There are a lot of things that are reliant on ActiveX controls rather than ...
Like others have pointed out there is no great browser experience for SharePoint On-Prem but IE unfortunately is the best with the most OOB functionality.
You can also use chrome and use a chrome extension called IE Tab which can add a lot of the functions you lose when using Chrome vs IE. It does tend to be finicky every once in awhile but from its ...
The best browser choice really depends on the work that you want to achieve in SharePoint.
Internet explorer is really good if you want to play around with OOTB features , configure web parts but again asy friend mentioned pages will load ...
Prior to service pack 2, SharePoint 2010 is not compatible with IE9. By default, the masterpage should force IE8 mode. I read somewhere that SP2 was making 2010 compatible with modern browsers but I do not remember seeing this confirmed.
Put this code at the bottom of the master page file just before the closing body tag.
var logoImg = document.getElementsByName(...)
I'm also ...
For Security Reasons, the browser does not allow Code to Access the local file System. Paths to local files require to be given by the user directly (eg. calling it using the Address-Box or selecting it for file upload).
You can it with .attr() like this:
Or you can try to hide and show with .hide() and .show() but then its completely not visible.
You have to check if your radiobutton is checked:
It's just not supported in Chrome.
About planning browser support SharePoint Server 2010 supports several
commonly used Web browsers. However, certain Web browsers might cause
some SharePoint Server 2010 functionality to be downgraded, limited,
or available only through alternative steps. In some cases,
functionality might be unavailable for ...
Changing the Document Mode to edge will cause problems. (For example drag and drop for webparts does not work in IE 11)
box-shadow is supported in IE 9 so you should not have a problem here.
