Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) Preloads Websites Content in Background to Optimize Performance

Windows 8.1 is soon going to set the floor of technology market. Along with this, Internet Explorer 11 is also coming. But, both of these are under development. The new version of Windows will come with Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) installed.

Though an internal build of IE 11 was leaked on 25 March 2013,[4] its first preview version was not formally released until June 2013, during the Build 2013 conference along with the preview release of Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1.[5] On 25 July 2013, Microsoft released the developer preview of Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.[2][6] IE 11 features redesigned developer tools,[7] support for WebGL,[8] enhanced scaling for high DPI screens,[9] SPDY,[10] prerender and prefetch

As promised, Internet Explorer 11 is making its way to Windows 7, slowly but surely. Almost a month after we got our first serious taste of Microsoft’s latest browser, currently available on Windows 8.1 only, the developer preview version for Win 7 has hit the web. Obviously, there’s a lot less Metro-flavored flash, but the most important features and improvements should still carry over. The biggest news is the improved performance and load times. Microsoft is quite proud of the enhancements it’s made to Chakra, it’s JavaScript engine, and claims it’s significantly faster than Chrome, Firefox and Opera. As always, though, you can take these self-administered benchmarks with a grain of salt. There’s also support for WebGL and advanced HTML5 video features, like those powering the next-generation Netflix player. And, seeing as how this is a developer preview, the package wouldn’t be complete with out some updated tools for building sites and web apps, in the form of an overhauled F12, that borrows heavily from Visual Studio

E 11 is coming with many new features and improvements. Here we will discuss the new and interesting feature of IE 11. This new feature of IE 11 is known as “Preload websites”. To optimize performance, it preloads the content of the website in background. Most of the users are habitual of opening the first link of the search result pages thus, IE 11 automatically start loading such links in background. In case, if you click on such link then IE 11 brings the preloaded page into view instantly. Well, this feature is very useful for broadband users as well as users having unlimited plans. But, users having limited data plan might want to disable this feature to save valuable bandwidth. For turning off this feature, check out the following steps: 1.Open Internet Explorer and click on “Tools -> Internet Options.” 2.Go to “Advanced” tab and scroll down a little to get following option: Load sites and content in the background to optimize performance
