comment JavaScript unable to get element using XPath in IE
If you're dealing with a web page that was generated with ASP.NET server controls it is possible that the "adaptive rendering" feature may have emitted different HTML code for non-IE browsers due to which the XPath pattern may be failing for IE - mvark.blogspot.in/2007/10/how-to-control-aspnets-adaptive.html

comment Is there a way to find out how long a tab has been open, or when a tab opened?
I know about this Chrome extension that can do what you're asking for - chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/time-tracker/… There is a bookmarklet that can track time but you'll have to start it for each tab that you want to track - mvark.blogspot.in/2014/01/…

comment Increase Accuracy IE 11 Geolocation
Going by this thread, the accuracy of geolocation detection MAY vary by location. A SO user found IE to detect his location than Firefox - stackoverflow.com/a/9079730/325251

comment Increase Accuracy IE 11 Geolocation
Yes, the method navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition is standardized but what the browser does to make it work depends on its own implementation & the geolocation service provider (different from mapping service) that it uses. Some Google services work better in Chrome - they are optimized for that browser. By that logic, I'm GUESSING that Microsoft MAY optimize Bing Maps to work better in its own IE browser so I suggested you try to check the accuracy. I understand using 2 mapping services isn't practical.
