Unable to select the text in IE

I would like to build a mobile web page with ionic but I would also like it to be viewable in a browser.

When I’m trying to select text (copy and paste) with the mouse on my website with internet explorer (IE10 and IE11), it is not working.

By default Ionic is disabled text selection. I am overriding ionic classes with following code.

      -moz-user-select: text;
      -webkit-user-select: text;
      -ms-user-select: text;
      -o-user-select: text;
      user-select: text;

It is working for chrome, firefox and opera, but not working for IE.

When I gone trough the ionic code, I found that all default events are stoping. When I comment out e.preventDefault() at line number 2693 in tapMouseDown() method (in Ionic, v1.0.0-beta.13 and file:release/js/ionic.js). It is working fine. I don’t want to update the ionic.js code. how can I fix this with out updating ionic.js.

I know ionic doesn’t support browsers that are not android 4.2 and that are not safari. but I’m guessing it is possible since it is being displayed in the documentation. so how can I make it work?

Thanks all for answers
