      The server you are downloading from, how much load it has on it, it's connection speed, your connection speed, how much load your connection has on it, and the speed of every router in between can affect download times. I doubt it is the browser.

        Yup, first you have to understand what a web browser really does..

        A web browser is just a compiler for your web page.

        about the download... it has nothing to do with the web browser.

            ok, then how come i started to download Mozill firefox with mozilla firefox (the rate was 50kb/s) then about 10 later (still 5 min remaining) i open opera and start the same download there, i used the exact same link (250kb/s and only took 20 sec)

            hey opera started later and finished first

              Your second download connected to a less busy server. Even if you go to the same address you're not always talking to the same server because most major sites are hosted on multiple servers.

              What it may point out is that the load balancing on that site isn't working as well as it ought to.
