Did you visit the same www-sites?

I haven't tried Fennec myself, but I've understood it to be a bit
of a memory hog and if you're not using sites benefiting from its
faster JavaScript VM, well, I guess you'll just have the memory

Does the demo have flashplayer disabled?  Disabling that can have
a large effect on the browsing speed.

To check whether the memory usage is issue, try "top" in the terminal
and check how much memory is available (free & buffered & cached).

Besides using the same www-sites and disabling the Flashplayer, you
might try rebooting the device to get more memory available if that
seemed an issue.

(If you've watched a lot of videos in the mediaplayer since last boot, 
the tiny leaks in different video codecs could have amounted to a bit
more in the media server over time, this you can fix just with
"killall osso-media-server" in the terminal.)
