the osx filesystem is not support to suffer as much from fragmentation as fat32/ntfs but
not sure how you tie the internet and your harddisk being fragmented together ?

What part of your computing experience feels slower? Is it slower to start up than it used to be? Does it seem to load webpages slower? Are programs running slower (and if so, which ones)?

Loading pages on the net and viewing streamling video

So it has nothing to do with disk fragmentation or the computer running slow - you are having Internet and/or network issues. Are you connected via wifi or Ethernet cable? You might want to test your Internet speed here. Also your Internet service provider might have a slow DNS, I have TimeWarner in Ohio and they are awful. I use OpenDNS. The issue with slow Domain Name Servers isn't the network speed itself but how long it takes before the page starts loading.
