You have three variables: browser, open office, and document being opened.
Assuming you are opening the same document to get your timing comparisons, we ca drop that as a variable
For browser, you have either Firefox or IE. For document reader application you have open office.
Conclusion, IE is slow. You may just have to live with it. (Or else buy a faster PC. That is what MS tools are good for, justifying PC upgrades. 8^)
