Safari running EXTREMELY slower than Firefox???

I am about a month into my MBP. I downloaded firefox just because that's what I was used to on my PC.

I started using Safari and I really like the UI compared to firefox...but it's loading everything REALLY slow. I have done various net speed tests and w/ my airport wireless on my MBP i'm getting close to 3meg/second in firefox but only 1.2m/s in safari.

I went to the apple homepage to watch the new commercials and it took minutes to load the videos according to the status bar on the built-in quicktime player. In Firefox, the video loads about as fast as the page does.

Anything I should know??
