    Default Open links made by createObjectURL in IE11

    Why can't you open the link in the following demo:
    http://html5-demos.appspot.com/static/a.download.html

    You cannot even right click and open it in a new tab/window. Is there any setting in the browser I need to customize?

    From the demo page which you linked to:

    Browser support: right now, only Chrome dev channel (14.0.835.15+) supports this attribute.
    In IE 11 you can right click and "save target as".

    I downloaded the file using Firefox 29.0.1. No problem.

    The problem doesn't seem to be due to the download attribute. Here's a demo without it:

    Thanks for the test, but please give it a try in IE11.

    Pretty much. As far as I can tell, this is simply a case of something (two things really, the blob and the createObjectURL) still relatively new that IE hasn't fully implemented yet. It is possible that there is a setting (or more than one) in IE 11 that would more fully enable it, but obviously (if it exists at all) it isn't the default. Also, since I get the impression that this is HTML 5, the standards that apply to it might not yet be fully established and/or might be subject to change and/or have options that give browser manufacturers choices as to how fully they wish to implement it.
