Any up-to-date machine work - this is 3 year's old, though it was a beast in it's youth. It's much more to do with the internet connection.

Java you don't need.

In Firefox you can set so that cookies expire when you close FF. - in tools-> option ->privacy -> cookies

Well it takes less than one second from clicking the "Click to see the map" button to a completed download. (that's firefox)

IE is a good bit slower - say 7 seconds.

This is Windows XP, Athlon 1.7 GHz, 500Mb Memory on a 600Kb broadband connection.

I would suspect a firewall or virus checking problem.
