I use IE when neither Firefox or Chrome can display the page due to compatibility issues.

Just use IETab for Chrome. There's also one for Firefox.

Set it to automatically open any microsoft pages in an IETab by going to the extension's options and add http://*.microsoft.com/* to the Auto URL list.
