Default problems viewing XDA on IE11 / win8.1

I've encountered page load problems and was hoping someone had similar experiences and could offer some pointers. the device is an Asus T100 running Windows 8.1 w/ IE11. I'm experience never-ending load times when swiping back to a previous page from the current page. I'll get the index portion of the page to load, but the ads on the right hand side of the screen usually just never reload, even after minutes of waiting, so I'm left with an essentially hung browser. I can successfully use Chrome or the FF beta to navigate, but I actually kind of like IE11 on the tablet so would prefer to use it if I could. Thanks in advance for any tips you could share!
