IE version change wrecks Google Maps?

Kathleen Atkins

When a feature suddenly changes for the worse — or disappears from your machine entirely — it’s natural to wonder what you might have done to cause the unwelcome event.

Lounge member BillWilson believed a recent upgrade to Internet Explorer 11 might have been responsible for ugly rendering of Google Maps. So he posted his problem in the Internet Explorer forum. But as it turns out, Google has been making changes, too.
