Hi,

To the best of my knowledge, increased cipher-strength (high-encryption browser) won't do anything to improve the speed of your browser. What it WILL do is give you access to certain webpages that you couldn't access with a lower-encryption browser (many bank/financial sites require a high-encryption browser in order to access them).

Cipher-strength is really just the ability of a cipher (essentially a set of keys to exchange information back and forth) to withstand being "broken". If one takes a plaintext document, then uses a "key" to transform it into ciphertext, they can then send it to the intended recipient, with less of a risk of the document being intercepted and viewed (by a third-party).

This site has more info: Cryptography explained

If you want to increase your browser speed, try typing in "internet explorer" + "tweaks" into a search engine, like Google or Yahoo.
