The browser only makes the connection after that it is purely academic. After that it's the computer and the connection delivery.
The variations would be RAM, CPU speed, Ethernet or USB connection, The rating of the Ethernet card, Protocols, Modem transference speeds, wired or wireless for the computer.
Regards the Internet side, Packet sizes, Connection speed, where your downloading from, what client you are using [legal or illegal] Proxies, how many on the site you are downloading from, The number of people downloading the same thing, lags, interruptions etc.
No two downloads are the same. You yourself know you can go to download something and it's so bad you give up. Go back two hours later and zip it's done in a couple of minutes. Yet your using the same computer and the same browser and the same connection

As wasimasif mentioned different browsers allow different numbers of connections per host, which can affect load time. In addition browsers have different JavaScript execution engines, which can vary widely speed wise (as the author alludes to). So the browser can have a HUGE effect on overall page load time, especially for sites with a lot of content and a lot of JavaScript. Browserscope has replaced gquintana's link, and that's a good place to start if you want to see the differences between browsers.
