Is there a way to use a specific site in Edge natively in IE mode?

ケン 劉 1 Reputation point

I received the following email.


Hello Google Maps Platform customer,
We're writing to let you know that the use of the Maps JavaScript API and Embed API from the Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) browser is deprecated and will be fully decommissioned in August 2022.
You are receiving this message because we have determined that one or more of your projects have users with devices that run IE11.
What do I need to know?
IE11 is the final version of Internet Explorer. As support for IE11 from Microsoft and the Web community is ending, the use of the Embed API and JavaScript API from IE11 will be degraded per the following schedule:
For Maps JavaScript API:
• Beginning with Maps JavaScript API version 3.46 (release date August 2021)
A dismissible warning message will be displayed to IE11 users at the top of maps, similar to this one: "You are using a browser that is not supported by the Google Maps JavaScript API. Consider changing your browser."
• Beginning with Maps JavaScript API version 3.48 (release date February 2022)
Maps will no longer load in Internet Explorer browsers.
• After August 2022 (when Maps JavaScript API version 3.47 is retired) IE11 support is effectively discontinued across all available Maps JavaScript API versions and channels.
For Maps Embed API:
• Beginning August 2021, a dismissible warning message (same as above) will be displayed at the top of maps for IE11 users.
• After August 2022 (at the same time as the JavaScript API version 3.47 is retired) Maps Embed API will no longer be available in Internet Explorer browsers.
What do I need to do?
To enable you and your users to continue accessing Maps Embed API and Maps JavaScript API, please encourage your users to switch to a supported browser. You can also temporarily delay the degradation of the maps by specifying an available JavaScript API version that still supports IE11, i.e. version 3.47 or lower.
Your projects listed below have Maps JavaScript API and/or Maps Embed API usage from devices running IE11:


We have the following corresponding solutions
one)Continue to use in IE mode.
two)Only let the page represented by Google Maps be opened with edge.

「Continue to use in IE mode」
I looked into this,After August、Because IE11 will not be available in all JavaScript API versions、
This method may not wor.

「Only let the page represented by Google Maps be opened with edge」
An problem occurred,Please see attachment for details.Pass a value from IE mode to Edge、Pass a value from Edge to IE mode、Is there a way to do this?

Is there any other way to solve this problem?

thank you very much.
Best Regards

    Hi @ケン 劉 ,

    Pass a value from IE mode to Edge、Pass a value from Edge to IE mode、Is there a way to do this?

    You can try share cookie between Microsoft Edge and Edge IE mode, this requires configuring Edge IE mode via group policy. And in the configured sites.xml file, you can share cookies by configuring the <share-cookie> tag. What you need to pay attention to is that make sure your Edge version is v99 or later, otherwise sharing cookies from Internet Explorer to Edge will not be possible. Please refer to this doc for more details: Share cookie between IE and Edge.

    On the other hand, I would also recommend switching to a modern browser such as Microsoft Edge. Because the Maps JavaScript API will soon no longer support IE11 as mentioned, and IE 11 will not be supported as well.
