You don't mention what you are using for the proxy server.

In direct connection, Ziff-Davis and other have found that under '98, IE4 is faster than Netscape.

The one reason that IE4 would be slower is if you are using active desktop. Unless you have CPU power and ram to burn, this makes IE4 Much Slower!  Right click on the desktop and turn off Active Desktop..... I found it took dual Pentium Pros with NT to make Active Desktop not slow down IE4.... It is on by default.
