Comment (by tangobravo):

 Nobody is doubting your particular symptoms. Equally there is no reason to
 doubt that anevilyak is not seeing the same thing on his setup, so it
 seems a reasonable conclusion that this bug does not affect all hardware.
 Getting angry is not the way to reach a solution.

 I believe Web+ doesn't do any local caching, so will result in more
 network requests for each page load. I wonder if there is an issue with
 the network drivers in use on the machines you have tested. Could you
 provide more details of the hardware on which you have observed the slow
 page loads? Some network drivers suffered a performance regression after
 the latest FreeBSD driver update; the plan is to patch them manually for
 the alpha4 release so if you have others affected by the same issue it
 would be good to know about them before the release. See #8454

 I agree that Web+ should be better at handling background tab loading, but
 it sounds like that will require a rewrite of the network backend which is
 a significant undertaking. Although we want R1A4 to be as good as
 possible, we have to accept it will not be perfect (otherwise it would be
 R1!) - it is still an alpha release, and people testing should assume that
 performance and stability are still all to be improved.
