It looks like a combination of the following factors:
- for some reason IE11 closes connections after JS requests to
nginx.org in your test;
- when IE11 have to open a connection, it opens 2 of them.
As a result, every second request request uses pre-cached connection
established previously, and it is fast. Others have to wait while
a connection is established.
No idea why IE closes connections, but it doesn't happen on normal
use. May be some bug, or heuristics, or a security measure (as
the test triggers CORS errors).
