My experience with IE11 is terrible - its slower, switching between tab is slow, it freezes frequently.

I am having exactly the same problem. While watching a youtube video, even scrolling down or doing something in another window will cause the video to skip horribly, quite consistently. It seems to drag the rest of the pc down as well, even though the resource monitor never shows more than 10% CPU usage, no spikes or anything. Ram is less than half full (2 gigs out of 4 gigs used) and it doesn't look like any other process is using the CPU any more than IE11. IE10 worked fantastically, and it is only after updating to 8.1 (IE11) that this issue has come about. I can hardly watch any youtube video anymore, much less 1080p videos, without horrible, freezing skips.
