  1.  

    The following things can help in faster web surfing:

    1. Your internet connection. The better your Internet service is, the better off you’ll be. I suggest Cable Internet or Verizon FIOS. If you’re only on a phone modem or low end DSL connection I’d suggest replacing that first.

    2. Your Web Browser. Try using Google Chrome http://www.google.com/chrome

    3. Your computer. A computer with a faster CPU can also help out a lot with faster web surfing. I’d also suggest running at least 2 GB of RAM.

    4. System cleanup. Having a lot of junk software running in the background can slow you down.
