    I am facing similar issues in my Lumia 720. IE does not render some webpages correctly, keeps on flashing, resizing. Its been happening from few weeks and I am unable to read articles published on TechCrunch, TheVerge, etc.
    I use IE on my desktop and I am pretty happy to use it. Dunno what is causing this problem in WP8.1 with Denim update.

    Glad to see this thread, I was about to make one.

    I have a Lumia 530 and 635, and neither of them can load some sites properly (for example, weather.com loads up different and unrefined compared to iPhone 5S and my Moto G LTE).

    But one site in particular I found to be a benchmark is an anime streaming website called Anime Haven

    Just for example's sake, search in Bing or Google "korra anime haven" and click a link of an episode. Just see if the embedded video actually plays or if IE crashes on you, because it crashes on me with the error "Out of memory at line: 1"

    If anyone can load this, for exmaple, on their Lumia and play the video, you need to tell me which Lumia model it is so that I can have a device that I'm confident in browsing with. Because as of now, my Moto G blows the Lumias I have out of the water, Chrome mobile browses just as damn well as Chrome on the PC, not to mention the inertial scrolling and tab management are so well done vs. IE on Windows Phone.

    Do you guys think Project Spartan will compete with the likes of Chrome on Android? Just tried the technical preview of it on my Lumia 635 and it still crashed on that anime haven link with the error message "Out of memory at line: 1"

    EDIT: Okay, here is something EXTREMELY perplexing. My ancient old Nokia Lumia 710, with Windows 7.5, is able to load that site and play the videos on a separate screen! How is this possible??? It should be inferior in every way to the 635, it has a single core processor with 512 mb of ram, and on old firmware.

    To be honest, I think this is very much the case of the difference between having a 512mb device and 1Gb device. My older Lumia 820 loads/plays all links you listed pretty well. I just have to wait for the page to load. Other than that, there are no problems. I suppose having more ram should help.

    Yeah, same here. We had a very similar IE bashing topic before in which my phone (also a Lumia 820). Loaded all the noted "poorly rendering" pages perfectly.

    IE hate's always been a fad. It was at least justifiable back in the days of IE9, but it kinda stuck around without any consideration of how much better things have gotten since then.

    Even as a previous Chrome fanboy, the super slick speed and smoother scrolling of IE11 have brought me back (that and - from a .NET dev's pov, IE is whipping Chrome's booty at HTML5/Canvas).

    Just did it on my 1520 wiht10tp on it, I can provide screen shot too. I can try it later on a 521 if need be or a 635. I paid 250$ for this 1520. And why weather.com wouldn't an app be better?

    IE on my l620 suffers all of the above issues, on any complex site it just quits. Of course I know this is my/my phone's fault and really WP's IE is faultless & best mobile browser in the multiverse blah blah blah. Just wish there was Chrome for WP though. Also if the L620 should ever get W10/Edge will it be possible to uninstall IE and all the other useless 8.1.1 system apps? I wish.
