delete your temp internet files, and then clear your flash cache by going here: ( http://www.macromedia.com/support/do...manager07.html ).

After that is said and done. Download Google Chrome and don't look back.

There really is no competition... Chrome is leaps and bounds faster then IE.

For sheer speed, I believe Opera has the title. But Chrome IMO has the best UI, and is a close 2nd for speed.

IE is the slowest browser, switch to firefox or chrome and you will automatically see a speed increase.

I like firefox. Fast and always security updates that block attack sites.
