    I was a little disappointed with the refreshing on Internet Explorer on 2520. You can go to the desktop version of IE on the desktop and go to Manage Addons. Go to Tracking Protection and add a provider. I just used the first one, Easylist Standard. Makes a huge difference when going back to a previous page on both the Start page version and the full IE.

    Also, you can speed things up by going to System, Advanced System Settings, Advanced and changing performance settings. At least leave smooth fonts on.

    Make sure you close both IE's down or restart to affect changes.

    Hmm. It probably has more to do with how websites are optimized for WebKit nowadays. *sigh*

    Also, this is proof that IE has actual add-ons. If you want to speed things up, there's always AdBlock. Does it work on RT?

    Thanks, I did this and it helps a little when going back to a previous page in Metro IE. It doesn't go and re-fetch new advertisements anymore. The first provider, EasyList, claims in its description that it's the same list used by AdBlock.

    I've tried this and browsing with IE is much quicker than before. Thanks for the tip, Gapost! :D
