If you're running Windows 7 try upgrading to IE10 from the MS site.

Google Chrome is ahead of Firefox and IE in these browser reviews.

Interesting that Chrome gets 10/10 for speed and compatibility, whereas Firefox gets 9.38 and IE 8.75

From experiance with client machines I have to say chrome is akin to pouring treacle into the PC ..... add Norton into the equation and you get a similar speed to a ZX Spectrum

I've just switched to Chrome from IE10 on a 64 bit Windows 7 Ultimate machine and it's noticeably quicker.
