    What would speed up and take less resources and speed up web pages starting: Using a security suite or windows firewall and a good AV?

    On my Win 7 setups, I found MSE and the default Windows firewall worked better than the suites.
    But I also considered a 'layered' approach and added MBAM V.2, Superantispyware, Emet and several browser security extensions for Firefox.
    And Sandboxie to run the browser in.

    There is now a MBAM browser extension ( in beta ). for Firefox and Chrome.
    The recent HTTPS Everywhere seems to load some web pages a little quicker if unencrypted requests are blocked.
