I do hope you've already switched to Firefox or something a lot better than IE. However there is something else faster than Firefox at the moment and I JUST can't wait for it to get out of alpha/beta!!! It's Firefox Minefield
And there you have it, you'll be surfing faster than Google Chrome, but if you want to test your extensions make sure you try and install the nightly addon to override the compatibility settings.
