Internet Explorer 11/10/9 Very Slow to Load Pages in New Tab

Filed in » Speed UpSubmitted by

This post explains the problems and solutions to when your IE11/IE10/IE9 is very slow to load pages, freezes when opening new tab, or open in new tab not working.

If your Internet Explorer 11/10/9/8 takes more than 3sec to finish opening a new tab, you are experiencing the slow tab opening which is a common problem to many IE 11/10/9/8 users. What follows are the solutions to this “open new tab slow” problem.

Everytime you open a new tab, IE will connect to something before it gets ready for you to use. Consequently, the Add-ons that you’ve installed in your IE might intentionally or inadvertently slows down the new tab opening process. Recently, Microsoft has put up a post in the official IE Blog to explain how Add-ons could potentially decrease the browsers’ performance in crucial activities like opening a new tab.

Now that we know what causes the problem, I think you probably already have some solutions there in your mind. Yes, disabling add-ons is indeed the only solution, but which one should you disable? I bet you wouldn’t want to disable those that you need badly while surfing the internet. The following is a chart provided by Microsoft that shows the median load times for the newest versions of the 50 most used add-ons in IE today. Users who have many of these add-ons installed will definitely notice a performance impact when starting IE or creating a new tab. This chart can help you to decide which add-ons to disable.

Internet Explorer 11/10/9 Very Slow to Load Pages in New Tab – How to disable addons

Well, it is hard to remove or uninstall an add-on in IE. I would prefer you to just disable it, this has the same result as removing them. To disable addons in IE, open Add-on Manager by going to Tools -> Manage Add-ons. Find and highlight the add-on you want to disable, and then click on Disable button; another way is to simply right click the add-on and select Disable.
