Put meta tag on top of header section in typo3

In order to prevent quirks mode in IE9 I need to add this lines at the very top of every HTML page:

You can write the whole header by yourself, by adding disableAllHeaderCode = 1 to your typoscript or you can hack it by adding your meta tag directly to the head tag:

page.headTag = <head><meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />

Place this at your typoscript

meta.X-UA-Compatible = IE=edge,chrome=1

httpEquivalent: (Since TYPO3 4.7) If set to 1, the http-equiv attribute is used in the meta tag instead of the “name” attribute. Default: 0.
