Google On IE11 Displays Left Aligned

google bugGoogle and Microsoft's Internet Explorer 11 are not acting nicely together. In short, if you are using IE11 and you do a search at Google, the results will be extremely close to the left hand side of the page.

One person said, he can't use Google like this and described it saying, the "results are just text a couple words per line on the very left side of the screen."

Nealeigh from Google said Google is working on a fix, she wrote:

The team is currently working on a fix for this issue so you'll no longer have to take these extra steps. I'll report back when it's complete.

Thanks for your patience and ingenuity.

Whatever happened to cross-browser testing before releasing new website features?

I just looked on IE11 on Win7 x64 without issues.

They aren't displaying well on some proxy servers, either. I use proxies to compare what I see in search results with what clients (in other regions) see and over the past few weeks I have had trouble getting Google to display correctly on some of the proxies. I can live with this bug but if it's showing up in browsers, too, then that's an issue.

Maybe Microsoft should do some cross website testing before releasing new browsers?
