RDP 2008 Clients Browsing the WEB is crazy slow

RDP 2008 Clients Browsing the WEB is crazy slow from a remote session. Up until now, we have been on Windows 2003 Terminal server with no issues in this respect. Now on 2008, our browsers are dead in the water. The ability to browse the web is core to our company's existence, so the recommendation to not browse via RDP is not an option for us. Has anyone made the browsers work at a reasonable pace? If so, how.

Which browser are your clients using?

Chrome and IE11
Adobe Flash is oftentimes the culprit of poor performance in a TS Session. Try disabling the flash plugin and re-launch the browser to see if the issue corrects.

Not typical for RDP, unless there is a lot of moving content (Flash'n'stuff).
Any chance you worked with reduced color depth on W2003 RDP?
Turned out the DNS was set incorrectly on the server. After that was corrected, website came in fine. Thanks everyone for the help.
