Why does my page load extremely slow on IE7 and IE8 but normal on all other browsers?

This is really bugging me as I can't figure out where the damned leak is!
This page works fine (as well as the rest of the site) on all browsers and tablets except on IE7 and IE8 where it works but loads extremely slowly.

The short answer is IE is slower in general with most loading and especially the JS engine.

Your page is loading 18 requests of javascript alone at just over 1MB... that takes a long time to load.

You likely dont need all those jquery libraries and several that indicate in their file name that they are minified are awefully big for that to be true.

Streamline your jquery requests and it will likely improve everything. I mean it is really slow in IE but its still pretty darn slow in FF as well.
