Although only the "normal" weight is needed, IE also downloads the bold weight.

Firefox, Chrome & Opera only download the normal weight.

Hello Jake Archibald,

For now we will mark this case as resolved because we are not presently working on feature bugs in Internet Explorer outside of security-related issues. However, I am seeing this corrected in Microsoft Edge. If you are still seeing the same problem please feel free to update this case. We would be happy to continue investigating should it be an issue with Edge. Thanks for your understanding.

Best regards,
The Microsoft Edge Team.

I'm seeing all four fonts downloaded (verified through F12 tools and separately through Fiddler) in 11.0.9600.17239 (update versions: 11.0.11 (KB2976627), Product ID 00150-20000-00003-AA459), as well as in Dev Channel (Version: DC1 (KB2957980))

Thank you for the feedback. I wanted to check with you to find out if the issue is reproducible on your pc after installing the latest update for Internet Explorer? The latest update would bring your IE version to 11.0.9600.17239 In our testing, we have not been successful in reproducing this issue so if you are still able to reproduce the issue, please provide screenshots of extra downloaded fonts.
