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.

comment How to determine and quantify distance on a webpage?
When you search for a word in Chrome, it not only highlights all the word matches but shows an orange mark for each match in the vertical scrollbar which you can use a rough visual indicator of the position of a match.

I remember seeing this sometime back but I don't see this feature in Chrome ver 38 on Windows. What version are you using? Also, check this Chrome flag fix - superuser.com/questions/739846/…

comment How can I prevent the Google Maps Country Redirect?
@pnuts I was able to switch from google.com/maps to google.co.in/maps but once I switched, there is no link to revert back to google.com/maps. Clearing cookies will probably set the default again to google.com/maps

comment How can I prevent the Google Maps Country Redirect?
@pnuts yes, for some places the maps may be shown differently. For example, check the boundaries of the top most part of India in the maps from two country specific Google Maps sites - google.com/maps/@17.4123487,78.4080455,4z & google.co.in/maps/@17.4123487,78.4080455,4z
