technically, they should be roughly equivalent.  However, here are  
some reasons (outside of ka-Map) why FireFox may appear to be faster  
than IE:

* number of simultaneous connections.  ka-Map loads many images from  
the same server ... browsers limit to 2 or 4 simultaneous  
connections, which means that the images load sequentially rather  
than simultaneous.  I believe FireFox has a higher default than IE,  
and so the tiles would appear to load faster.

* efficiency of the javascript engine.  FireFox is much better and  
avoiding memory leaks than IE and, over time, IE appears to slow down  
as it consumes more and more memory.
