My girlfriend's HP Notebook with Windows 7 SP1, really bogs down on Gmail when using Internet Explorer 11.  I have checked that Compatibility Views are defeated, and that Default (Edge) is used as the rendering style in the F12 console.

 

So I visit my friends this weekend.  She has a Windows 7 based Dell PC.  He has a new gaming system with Windows 8.1 installed.  Both have Internet Explorer 11, and both load Gmail just fine.  They both work great.

 

All three builds are x64 editions (both Windows 7 and the one Windows 8.1 PC).

 

So what gives?  Why is my girlfriends IE 11 installation stupified by Gmail?  If I unistall IE 11, then IE 10 works fine on the same PC.

I know this doesn't help you at all, but issues like this is why I have chosen to not update to IE11 yet.  I've stuck with IE10.  I'm not aware of any feature IE11 has that I need.  Of course I very rarely use IE at all, preferring chrome or Opera, or even Firefox instead.

 

Cheers and Regards

Which was precisely what I ended up doing.  I have her back on IE10.
