Our experience with Google Chrome is excellent. In every regard, the performance is superior to Explorer. And Chrome has an advertising blocker that works wonders in keeping pop-ups and other forms of unwanted advertising from appearing.
You can download it free from Google and with a little experimentation you can create the settings you want to use and learn about the navigation fairly quickly.
It seems to be a significantly better browser than Explorer, especially with the elimination of all the ads, and it is faster.
