YouTube on IE11

    This shouldn't come as a surprise for anyone who has ever used YouTube (since they tend to break whenever anyone sneezes), but it's weirdly broken on IE11.

    The home page when you're not logged in has a weird offset between where the UI elements are and where you actually need to click to use them.

    The video players shows as if it's embedded in a site that's not YouTube (so it has no player size button but does have a button to open the video on YouTube).

    Knowing YouTube, this is not likely to be fixed until several months after IE11's final release.

    Also there seems to be no way to use compatibility view in IE11. The button never appears in the address bar, and the only option for document mode in the new F12 dev tools is "edge".

    Hmm, It looks to be OK on my machine (running 64bit 8.1 on Intel)

    Yeah, YouTube seems to have fixed itself. Still no sign of compatibility view, though.
