Internet Explorer 10 and higher displaying an X to clear display in input text fields

Knowledge Article Number 000232683
Description The "X" (Clear All) icon in Text Input Field is the default functionality in IE 10/11. This is not caused by Salesforce side. 

Here is the article from Microsoft that explains the new behaviour the customers are seeing: 

Default behaviour:
"Windows Internet Explorer 10 introduces a new Clear button for text input fields. This button will be displayed in all rendering modes, but only if the text input control has focus and is not empty. Once pressed, the input field gets cleared."
Resolution While in IE you will always see this option but you can use a different browser if you do not want users to see this icon.
