Install IE10 on the system via Windows Update just in case IE needs to be used for something. IE10 is so much more secure than IE8.

Then install Chrome* for the kids.

*If you don't mind Google being that much a part of their online lives.

IE10 has better security than IE8 - I suggest that you use it.

I tested each browser 3 times - but I had some other things going on in the background that I was not willing to kill just for these tests.

IE10 with 54bit tabs enabled.
(See this tutorial if you want 64bit tabs.)

Palemoon 64bit - which is a version of Firefox
(Jerky on the animation and videos.)

Firefox 32bit

There are lots of things that could be slowing your browser down. Once you move to IE10 (or at least IE9) we can start hunting for other issues.
