Re: Thoughts on GWT 3.0 re: Java 8 and IE 8/9

In Intranet environment, that META tag can only change IE Document Mode (such as how IE layout the web page), but it cannot change IE Browser Mode (such as IE's JavaScript Engine). It is because the Browser Mode is loaded (Intranet is detected) before IE parse the HTML.

Even with the <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1"> tag, in the Intranet environment IE 9 can display HTML5 sites in appearance only, but using IE 7's JavaScript engine, which does not support HTML5 feature like <canvas>... etc. 

I guess you have to uncheck the checkbox "Display intranet sites in compatibility view" in IE's compatibility view settings.
