  1. Using Windows 10 and IE11, every time I go to techspot.com, the page fails to load completely and IE 11 reports a long running script as the cause. I "stop script" and it takes one or two more reloads of the page to finally load.

    Consider this; using a CDN:
    Many sites use a CDN ( Akamai is one such ) for globalization (ie responding from a geographically local host) and if one of them is slow, then the sources are slow to load . . . [eg:" takes one or two more reloads of the page to finally load"]. Until ALL the webpage source is loaded, the Javascript is not allowed to run, and this creates the dreaded "Long running script" issue for the user.
