Re: Reaction OWB better than MUIOWB?

I do not know how it feel faster, because muiowb clearly faster when scroll big fat pages. I do compassion some time ago, and even make a video to show how speed is different on facebook (where muiowb was a lot faster at that time). Maybe gui itself feels a bit faster, dunno, but in theory muiowb should be faster in rendering all the time (and it was like this in practice).

Scrolling smoothness speed and display a web page speed are different sorts of speed. As with allthese things it likely depnds on which website you look at. I think I found that MUIOWB was faster on javascript heavy sites and similar on others.

I stuck with Reaction OWB however as the MUI version is less stable, and I didn't have an overwhelming need for the frills. Should there be an update to the MUI version, and it prove more stable (can't see whuy it wouldn't) I would likely swap over.


And as for font rendering : there is ra-owb for sure better. I always like it myself, and i never like that sucking boring boredom with fontconfig.

I think the fonts look nicer but they render the wrong size causing some websites to ay out oddly, compared with other systems.


Sadly that Joerg wasn't in interest to make all those download managers and co.. He was sure TW will be done fast, and will works fast, but well ..

He was IIRC more interested to get HTML etc functionality working than the frills functions like download mangers which no body actually needs. (Like sugar in your tea is nice but not neccessary)
