If your using firefox then try these tips, I am using it myself and it really is MUCH faster!
1) Type "about:config" (without the " " ) into the address bar and hit return.
Scroll down and look for the following entries:
Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time.
When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really
speeds up page loading.
2) Alter the entries as follows: (by double clicking them)
Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"
Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"
Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30.
This means it will make 30 requests at once. (I changed mine to 100,
3) Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer.
Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" (without the " " ) and
set its value to "0"(without the " " ). This value is the amount
of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.
