No clear answer, just fishing. I don't really need to know why. Just very happy to see the improvement with iMac.

Was using Safari. May try FireFox one of these days.
so many different factors can contribute to internet speed especially what the reps mentioned above. I actually thought my internet ran slower on my mini than my PC it replaced here at home. However i am using a combination of Safari and FireFox and no longer notice any difference.

you could have a few computers on the same network and they will each load the internet up differently during casual web browsing. I just purchased an iMac myself and am eager to see how it runs compared to the mini and my old PC. But first i have to clean my desk....
