    Coming up with a way to easily navigate and administer a Drupal site has always been a bit of a struggle. Usually, you’ve pleased the site builders and confused the normal site admins.

We like to use admin_menu for site builders, and to use navbar as a nice and easy site admin toolbar. Admin_menu is great to give site builders quick access to almost every admin page there is.

    Drupal web development is in high demand. Web sites are becoming more complicated and the use case scenario is always changing. It is not uncommon these days to have a website that is never finished, but instead is in a constant flux of feature requests and sprint completions.

    I develop Drupal websites on Mac, so I usually don't have to deal with IE at all (since I use the excuse that I can't install IE on mac). Lately, I started adding IE testing to my skill set list and have been playing around setting up multiple virtual machines for browser testing. You can read my blog post here on how to setup any IE on mac.

    Anyway, recently I ran into a very interesting IE11 problem.

    I want to share my finding here and hopefully you can learn from my mistakes.

    A few weeks ago, I was pulled into a Non-Drupal project. As I was configuring the site to run on my local computer, I realized that I have been taking advantage of Drupal and Drush. I forgot how easy it was to import and export MYSQL databases for Drupal web development. If you're a Drupal developer and are not using drush to import and export your databases, you should. It will save you time, and it's easy.
