Windows 7: Internet browsing slow with IE9

Internet browsing slow with IE9

When I use IE9 to browse the internet it sometimes is very slow. I have run an internet speed test program (speedtest.comcast.com) which hangs when testing IE9. I then started Chrome and the internet browsing was fast. I ran the speed test program and the speed was what I expected. I switched between IE9 and Chrome to access certain web pages and perform the speed test and in EVERY case browsing with IE9 was unbelievable slow while Chrome was very fast. I cleared the browser history file, check the register for errors. Even as I write this problem on Chrome the IE9 is still trying to access this forum.

Microsoft's Internet Explorer is total crap i gave up on it and switched to Google Chrome, its a much better and far more stable browser

Check your add-ons. IE9 works great and is a super browser. Chrome cannot even get close to it. I use it only in Ubuntu because there the option is Firefox which is even worse.

I agree with everything you said regarding ie9 vs Chrome. I also use and prefer Chrome............But, you said you "check the register for errors", and that concerns me, because while Chrome is faster then ie9 to me, it's not that much faster.

What program did you use to check/clean your registry? Did you delete any keys?

Chrome may be faster but the difference if any is small & hardly noticeable most of the time, its probably some crappy add-on or tool-bar slowing you down.

I would normally agree with you but this happens on just about every server I try. Sometimes the response from a particular server is normal and a few minutes later it takes literally minutes to acess the same server.
