Customize web site font and color settings – Changing the default settings for font and color are usually for Accessibility purposes, but if you just want to view all the pages you browse in one type of font, then here’s how to change it:
Go to Tools, Internet Options, General tab, and choose Accessibility. Select the Ignore colors specified on webpages, Ignore font styles specified on webpages, and Ignore font sizes specified on webpages check boxes. Then click the Fonts and Colors buttons on the General tab and choose the desired font and color.

Add customized commands to the IE toolbar – There are lots and lots of great ways that you can customize the toolbar in IE, such as using Bookmarklets or installing other third-party add-ons. Bookmarklets are little pieces of Javascript code you can add to IE that extends it’s functionality.
You can customize the toolbar by right-clicking on the command bar and choosing Customize Command Bar. Then click Add or Remove commands and move items between the Available and Current toolbar button lists.
Hope that helps speed up someone’s browsing experience! Enjoy!
