Why does the browsing go the same speed as it would on dial up, but the downloads and uploads go at your normal dsl speed?

Because there is a slight delay in the communications between your computer and the remote server, and that delay is mostly not because of your connection, but rather because of the connection between your ISP and the rest of the Internet. When you load a web page it generally sends one request for the page itself, and an additional request for each item (images, flash movies and such), so when each request takes 100-200 milliseconds to reach the destination, it takes a few seconds for the entire page to load, even if you have high-speed internet. In contrast, when you download, your computer sends only one request, and the server keeps sending data, so it appears as if there is no delay, and you download at your connection's maximum speed.
