Windows 8 - Should I notice the difference

Have upgraded from 7 to 8 this afternoon, and can't tell any difference other than my internet connection keeps falling over every 5 mins which may or may not be connected. I had classic shell installed before I upgraded, so when the upgrade was done my desktop looked exactly as before which is how I like it. According to Microsoft :

Internet Explorer 10 starts and loads sites almost instantly

...but my experience is that it takes at least 5-10 seconds to load most pages, and certainly no quicker than before.

I know most people will recommend firefox or chrome, but they won't keep my favourites open at the side like IE so are a no no.
