this is hard to say without seeing and knowing what exactly is not working. could be something simple as the doctype to get IE to not go into quirks mode or some feature that IE doesnt support like a specific ES6 feature or such. Try to open the developer tools of the browser and see if you can see an error or notice to narrow the problem down.

You can check whether JavaScript is compatible with each browser using Can I use.
https://caniuse.com/

Ex.
IE not supported
promise
fetch
arrow
ChildNode.before, ChildNode.after, ChildNode.replaceWith, ParentNode.prepend, ParentNode.append
intersection observer
class
find
for-of
include
Spread syntax
Template literal

For your concern that Google chrome works but internet explorer 11 do not, that is having an issue with opening some web pages, this could have happened due to several issues like configuration of your browser.

The configuration of the browser shouldn't have to do anything with that - if so then the entire page would be a mess in the first place since it shouldn't rely on specific configurations. There was a time when developers did rely on specific security settings in IE to use ActiveX components or such - which of course wouldn't work in any other browser then - and which today shouldn't be an issue anymore since noone should use that anymore. The OP wasn't asking about having issues with 'opening' the page but the page not working as intended.

The only thing that can happen from time to time could be that JavaScript is disabled by some paranoid user - which i personally would just ignore and give a polite hint in a noscript-section. Even if someone installs plugins and whatnot in his/her Browser it is something i would ignore if such a plugin would mess up a webpage. If you have done such on your own development machine though - then you should already know and have it fixed.

The OPs problem is most likely an issue with using a feature (JavaScript, HTML or CSS) that is not equally supported by all Browsers - thus we would need more information before shelling out anymore guesses - and the configuration or the browser is most likely the least probable issue.

Pay attention to tags, such as:
<img src="imgs/top1.jpg"></div>

It opens Input, and closes Button; IE can override it.
