More than a little -- they replaced NetFront with WebKit.

It's still not great but I guess that is mainly because the browser is all being rendered on a relatively slow PPC core without utilising the processing power in the rest of the Cell.

That slow PPC core is the fastest one in the package. I'm not sure how the SPEs could really be used to help, they are slow and resource constrained. While the "Cell" is a futuristic design it's pretty old now and not magic, no matter what the marketing says.
