My thoughts on speed comparison of OWB v Wayfarer has a degree of irrelevance to it, as OWB doesn't have the complexities of the inner workings of Wayfarer. OWB has been "tweaked" over the years to get the best from it, and now its "use-by-date" has almost expired. Whereas Wayfarer is only in its early days of release, "fresh off the shelf", so there's going to be lots more in its development path, and it can access so many more modern websites that OWB is now failing at even rendering the main page of a website that you really can't compare them against each other.
I like the fluid feel of use you get with OWB as it does what it can so very, very well, but I feel we all have to look to the future ... and that's Wayfarer ... bring on v1.6 and beyond ... I'm hungry for more.
We should just be extremely happy that jacadcaps, Piru, jPV, and the others in the Dev. Team are working wonders with this latest browser that is keeping our "head-above-water" in the internet technology era we are in.
