    Just messing around because IMO it feels as though network speed is faster. I have no proof though, just seat of the pants feel via NFS transfer.

    Anyway, I loaded OWB and then went to speedtest.net. I leave all the settings the website finds but note which server it connects to for the test so I can use the same one on Wayfarer. OWB pegs the CPU when I go to speedtest.net. Nevertheless, I am able to click GO on the webpage and my download speed is:
    download- 6.54Mbps
    upload- fails

    Wayfarer:
    Speedtest.net pegs the CPU also, just like in OWB.
    download - 31.83 Mbps
    upload - fails

    Not bad at all.

    I wonder why upload fails?
    MorphOS is Amiga done right! :-)
    MorphOS NG will be AROS done right! :-)

    I don't think that site gives reliable results anymore, because it has bloated quite much and something hogs all the available CPU power... for updating the meter graphics or something like that? At least I've got way better speeds when downloading files from elsewhere than what that site reports.

    Yes, Sppedtest.net has at least 3 scripts and 9 trackers/ads running. Without a decent ad blocker or PiHole it is useless. As most of the web these days...

    You do realize BOTH browsers have the same hindrance, right? LOL. Both have to deal with that. You can see the difference in performance.

    Diffierence in performance with what? I would guess that the difference comes how well they can run these heavy scripts in this particular page instead of actual transfer capabilities/speeds generally.

    yea after testing with a few other websites, its not really a good test. False alarm, false alarm. Time to put the pitchforks down.

    LMAO

    More interesting would be the browsing performance on websites.
    Is Wayfarer faster then OWB displaying modern websites?

    Put differently, Odyssey is much faster :-)

    As for the "quickness without displaying" some IBrowse or AWeb would outperform it though. Even Sputnik would, hands down.

    From my experience it differs quite depending on the actual site.
    Wayfarer is way faster on https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ in comparison to Odyssey.
    But wetteronline.de/guetersloh (or whatever actual city) is slower and remains in full load permamently. Then again the wetterticker fails completely on Odyssey since a while - Wayfarer can handle it :-). For the rain radar it's the opposite.

    Issues that I found:
    -The scrollbar of Wayfarer isn't always following the content (try meta.tagesschau.de).
    - Missing option to visit a site regardless of a non trusty certificate.

    Whenever you're sad just remember the world is 4.543 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie.

    Simply click on the trust icon or Show Certificate in the error message.

    Thanks for this great browser!

    I think my Peg2 with 1GHz it is just too slow. Its ok for simple sites, but as soon as Javascript heavy stuff kicks in, its over.
    Facebook is unusable and scrolling in general isnt really smooth.
    But it'll be enough for downloading amiga/morphos stuff and writing on amiga forums :)

    I think a PPC JIT for JS would increase performance by a huge margin. Deactivating it really pushed the performance even on my 1GHz G4.
