Default What am I missing? Input/Required HTML5

Hi everyone,

According to the caniuse.com site, the required attribute of the input element is supported by just about every browser out there. See:

While I realize that you must you server-side validation for everything received from the user, I'm at a loss as to why required doesn't work in Internet Explorer:
HTML Code:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="utf-8">


<form method="post" action="input-test.html">
    <p><label for="search">search
    <input id="search" name="search" type="text" placeholder="Search term" required></label></p>
	<input type="submit" value="SEARCH" class="submit">
I cut out everything else, including js libraries and css, thinking maybe something else was overriding it, but I still can't see this required attribute enforced in IE 11.
