On a slow PC (doing the sharing), bridging would be faster.

The main difference is that ICS is acting as a NAT router and DHCP server, while bridging is not. There is a small amount of latency involved in doing the routing part, but probably not enough to bother switching.

The advantage to bridging is that the remote device is now on the same IP network as everybody else, which can be useful for things like printing.
