I'm more familar with Linux with FireFox, but trying to use more of Windows and its native programs, such as IE. I also use three different browsers at the same time -- FF(FireFox), IE, Opera, for example, for testing and other reasons.
When I tried open ElasticSearch page (http://localhost:9200) using IE11, I was surprised to find that IE tries to download JSON, instead of showing it like FireFox.
Environment: Win7 64-bit.
Tried to view http://localhost:9200 on IE11 and got this:
Three solutions to this:
- Use JSON viewer, http://jsonviewer.codeplex.com/
- Registry change, http://www.codeproject.com/Tips/216175/View-JSON-in-Internet-Explorer
- Just click "Open", and select a text editor. And next time, it'll open it with the editor instead.
