Windows 7: IE 11 How do I disable the tab closing animation/delay?

IE 11 How do I disable the tab closing animation/delay?

Okay so in internet explorer (11) whenever I close a tab there is an annoying tab closing "animation" or delay. Is there anyway I can disable this? I want this gone.

I have posted a screenshot below showing you what I mean.


screencast

This is what happens whenever I close a tab. The tab appears "wide" and then it's back to normal. I would appreciate any input.

Hi,
I have not noticed any delay in closing tabs or all tabs for that matter,
The only delay I noticed is if you miss the "X" and nothing happens,
The only animating is when you close a tab the next tabs "X" is now under your cruiser,
Kind of cool but can be unforgiving at times
Cheers.
Owe what ever was on the screencast ? Page can't be displayed ?

Open for example 4 tabs in internet explorer. Click in x to close the last tab. Watch carefully what happens! the last tab closes of course. The other 3 tabs increase in size by 33%. You can close the last tab without moving the mouse now.

Moving the mouse away from tab bar decreases the size again.

Handy?

I believe it's handy
I personally open everything in a new tab so at times closing more than one is exactly what I want to do
I do not use tab groups not that it makes any difference in the animating bit,
I do not know of a way to turn it off

Oops. I don't know what that was. Maybe this direct link will help? http://s7.postimg.org/noiongoyj/How_..._animation.png I use postimg.org for uploading pictures to forums, I've seen other people on other forums use it so it has to be decent at least.

Yes, I believe it's only the latest opened tab that does this and moving the cursor away from the tab bar "solves" this, also if you move the cursor above the tab bar it still stay like that. I've found no settings to turn it off and apparently you guys also haven't. So that's good to know, it ain't just me!

LOL IE would be a decent browser to use if it wasn't for this. I sometimes like to browser with it. My primary browser is Pale Moon (FF derivative).

EDIT: [Off-topic] I also dislike how the font looks in IE... everything looks so soft and blurry. Chrome is the same, soft font rendering, ugh.

Interesting about the text issue :/
I've always found the text rendering to be very good even with stock onboard graphics ?

Have you increased your dpi settings beyond 100% default ?
Or increasing the page zoom rate using the default dpi at 100% ?

I just wanted to jump in on the fact that I now also have soft and blurry text in IE11 after installing the latest patch tuesday (12/8) Windows updates.
Before the updates the font/text was perfect, but now it's kinda soft and blurry and totally not relaxing on the eyes.

So I was wondering if more people like me and Jonguy are experiencing this and maybe some of you know how to revert it back to the way it was. That would be awesome and I would really appreciate it.

Thanks.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums LazyTom,
If you would refer to my last inquiry about the dpi and zoom rate you use it might help narrow down a cause,
DPI Display Size Settings - Change
Switch to Software rendering and see if there's an improvement,
Boot your machine after saving the settings change,

Thx for the quick reply back. Appreciate it.
But the DPI and zoom rate are still on the same size as before, so I don't think the problem lays there.
However, you wrote your post in 2 different fonts. The last font you used (talking about changing to software rendering) looks perfect to me. Is there a way of changing to that one?
I'm not sure though if that was the font before the updates, but any help is welcome.

Thanks.

Ha well that particular text was pasted here from a word 2007 doc which was using Calibri size-11 font,
I would probably ignore the size but review this,
