Hi, since I upgraded my Win 8 to Win 8.1, IE, which was my most favorite browser, became very laggy and it stucks for a few seconds on almost any page. (e.g. Facebook,, but pretty much anything) Websites like YouTube even very often make IE stuck for a brief time or make it even crash.
My inexpert suggestin is that it has to do something with flash or java or code or something maybe? But it sure is inside IE, since other browser are performing just fine. Also when using IE in Metro, it's slightly (but not completely) better than when using desktop IE.

If you could patch it, fix it or help me do something, I would be really happy, because I really don't like using other browsers, but since I'm a journalist and need to work fast on the internet I had to change my browser.
