Description
I'm running one of my scripts on IE 11 browser with Selenium 2.43.1 when the script types in text field using following:


    def setUp(self):
        # Ie driver
        self.driver = webdriver.Ie("C:\\Selenium\\drivers\\x64\\IEDriverServer.exe")
        self.driver.implicitly_wait(0)
       # url
       self.base_url = "https://www.google.com"
       self.verificationErrors = []
       self.accept_next_alert = True

In IE browser, I can see that one character of string is typed in text field and it waits for 1-2 seconds before typing next character. Means for typing one character it's taking 1-2 seconds.

Why is typing so slow with IE?
Is there any alternate way to speed up typing?
