    Well the kid is right...replicated it without using wi-fi.

    With the white screen when you go back. You let it be for secondsssssss then when it start to reload and images appeared the phone get back to home screen page of the phone.

    Happen over data but not over Wi-Fi. Also the phone get warm over Data while browsing but not over Wi-Fi

    My phone has LTE sim in it. I did not try on 3G.

    If anything, my experience with 8.1 and IE11 has been more positive than it was with IE11. Before and after web benchmarks show a noticeable performance improvement. I never have a problem with PhoneArena or any other sites. Reading view is a huge feature for me as well. Can't wait until they hook into that through Weave. You may want to do a system reset to revert it back to a default state. System settings > About > Reset your phone.

    Works great on my Lumia 920 as well, even over mobile data. It's extremely rare that I see any app crash, least of all IE.

    Ok!
    Here lots of user telling me that Phonearena work just fine.

    Try this
    Scroll to down and open last article then go back and scroll to up and open first article.
    try this for 2 to 3 times.

    In 90% of cases IE crashes in phone.
    But
    It may be possible that I am only one who is facing this issue.


    and thanks acewing905
    I forget to mention reloading issue.
    Just did it. Didn't crash. Kept doing it 4 more times. Still didn't crash my Lumina 920 IE browser. :walks away looking to recover wasted time:

    Using a single site as a metric for how well the browser works may not be a valid test. If you can reproduce that on other sites, there may be something to it. If so, it is quite possible that the site is using features that have limited support for common rendering engines. There are numerous features built into Webkit and Google's Webkit derivative, Blink that are proprietary to their dev kits. In other words, those features are not defined as a part of the W3C standard for HTML 5. Microsoft doesn't use Webkit or Blink. They use Gecko as their rendering engine and it is proprietary to Microsoft. In terms of performance benchmarks, this has advantages because they aren't subject to an open source committee like Webkit is. That is why Google spun off of Webkit and created their own rendering engine known as Blink. As websites become more and more feature rich and interactive, the development community has leaned more heavily on features that expand on the W3C standard to help differentiate.

    Sorry but I cannot test this flow right now... my L920's currently having an error with access point and I cannot use my mobile data anymore (Nokia's access point, so I'd wait for them).
    But seem like we need to confirm that if only 512MB phone has this issue or not.

    Guys windows phone is a developing OS....so guys who aren't happy with IE......dont worry it will get better with time.... Windows phone is more popular in terms of simplicity...and android in terms of features....so I dont thing comparing the two OS will finally have an end because each OS has its pros and cons.. I am not against anyone's opinion just a suggestion though😊
    Exactly why google should have android sorted out now. But they don't. it's still super fragmented and laggy. I have used it on the note 3 and s5 and its still slow and jumpy.

    That's an explanation that I am not familiar with what you said and surely not arguing with that....As an end user the only thing that i'm looking for is; Is it working or not? and How well?
    That is right, it need to do it to more than 1 site.
    I am not complaining as I can work with it. So be it if it does have problem here and there. It will get better overtime. And that is what people need to chill out with this preview

    And thinking about it; Why am I not having that problem when I use Wi-Fi as oppose of mobile data?

    Point of clarification on rendering engines.
    Chrome uses blink.
    Safari uses webkit.
    Firefox uses gecko.
    IE uses trident.

    Except Safari (because I don't have iOS), all of them can crash at any moment.

    Doubtful that you used two flagships and found them to be laggy. Also, the fact that majority of android devices have 4.1+ now makes this "fragmented" old.

    IE 11 has NEVER crashed on my 1020, so I'm not sure but it seems like you're having some other kind of issues. Also, phonearena.com opens very fast and I can browse it very fluidly.

    In regards to the popup thing, can you provide a link to test? I have yet to visit a site that won't open because of popups.

    Alsoo, IE is very fluid when scrolling and zooming and Chrome on Android is slow and unnatural. (I have a quad-core Nexus 4 at home as well) I personally think IE11 may not have some of the advanced features of Chrome, and that has always been the case, but speed is probably the biggest advantage of IE. Windows Phone's browser is very very fast. You should also try sunspider browser test on a Galaxy S4/S5 and watch how the benchmark is barely faster than a 2 year old Snapdragon S4 in a WP running IE11.

    Just be certain what device do you have? Sounds like you must have a budget phone if you're having performance issues
    You should try and use other benchmarks, because at every other browser benchmark, ie 10 mobile would suck. Sunspider was the only thing that it was optimized for basically. IE 11 has improved by quite margin, it still needs lots of work.

    Chrome in Android is the worst browser i ever seen in my life. IE10 was better. IE11 is 400% better than Chrome for Android.

    People need to understand one thing. The default browser need to be fast, safe, easy, clean and simple. IE11 is all of this and more. Need improvements, but just a little bit. It's almost perfect right now.

    IE11 run smooth on Lumia 520. Chrome is bugged, very slow, with really bad response EVEN in a Galaxy S4 or Nexus.

    This is a very weird comparison (IE x Chrome). IE11 need to be compared with Safari. Chrome is pure garbage.

    Here are the headline grabbing features that are new to IE11.

    Pin websites as Live tiles
    Inline video
    InPrivate mode
    Unlimited tabs
    Save passwords
    Synced tabs and favorites
    Reading mode
    Swiping left and right to go back or forward
    Those are some awesome features, but now we’ll jump in and clarify/expand what’s new and special about them.

    Here we go. Check out these 8 new kickass features in IE11 on Windows Phone 8.1 | Windows Phone Central

    Chrome runs on android is so unpredictable depending on the hardware. It's weird because I stop using it on my android device because of frequent crashes and use Firefox instead.

    Chrome on Android is horrible, fact. It's too slow to use it at least on my tablet. I use Puffin browser on Android although I use chrome on PC I can't make myself self to use it on Android.
