Disable IE "compatibility mode" through .htaccess

Internet Explorer "compatibility mode" is that dreadful page icon, inconveniently placed right next to the refresh button/icon.

What it does is turn IE 8 or higher into an outdated browser, so it can properly display really old school websites that were, likely, built using invalid and/or outdated HTML code. It's a horrible feature, that I see no practical use for whatsoever. Plus it's easy to accidentally click it, because it's located a few pixels away from the refresh button--talk about non-intuitive...

Anyhow... 

This is how you disable IE compatability mode on your website.

  In your .htaccess insert the following:

Header set X-UA-Compatible "IE=9; IE=8; IE=7;IE=edge"
