Browsers freezing and slow

I have a macbook pro 15 early 2011 model 2ghz i7 and i have upgraded to 8gb ram...my macbook is always connected wirelessly to the internet and i have tried ALL browsers. Safari 6.0.2, Google Chrome and Firefox and all suffer the same problem.. They all start to freeze and get very slow. I am constantly having to reload pages even when playing games on facebook... I have upgraded to mountain lion and it seems to have become worse... this is my first time with a mac and to be honest this is starting to sway me back to a pc.. it is not just sometimes it is doing it everytime..please help me fix this

Put the old RAM back in and see if the issue goes away.

How many tabs do you have open?

Have you tried installing flash block in chrome or Firefox, or click to flash in safari? Adobe flash content on the Mac is a HUGE resource hog, I pretty much don't use it.

Have you looked at activity monitor to see if you've got any processes using way too much CPU or RAM? if not, I'd run AHT to see if you're having a hardware issue.
