Web browsers are web browsers, I really don't think they have any effect on how fast your download speed is. Different web browsers have the ability to render pages faster than others. If you want faster Internet, upgrade your Internet package from your ISP.

I'm currently using SRWare Iron but i've found Firefox to have the best download speeds no matter the file size. Any add-ons being used while downloading will just slow the process down by limiting it's resources. If you want the fastest possible download, then you need to use as few programs as possible while downloading. If possible, close everything but the browser.

Firefox, with the DownThemAll add-on, you have settings to download more segments per minute. So basically you are able to pump all the speed you can, when I have it on, I can't even browse the Web. Just remember to set the download segments setting to the max (10)
