 Replying to [comment:28 umccullough]:
 > Preferably, we'll see some benchmarks comparing different versions of
 Web+ against each other on the same machine, same connection. (a stable
 connection - *NOT* satellite)

 Older versions of WebPositive will not run on recent nightlies, and recent
 versions will not run on r1a3. This would require compiling WebPositive on
 an older version of HAIKU to compare then side by side.

 > It should be done with clean installations and be repeatable from a
 fresh install. It would preferably be done via some kind of web-based
 browser test suite so that it can be recreated on a whim by others.
 > If this ticket finally boils down to "Web+ unusable on satellite", then
 I'll believe it - the latency involved and the funky caching that
 satellite modems utilize could probably cause untold numbers of issues for
 Haiku and Web+ at this stage.

  I have the same issue with the laptop at work, a cable connection, at a
 friends house ... a different cable provider, and at my remote work
 location, a third cable provider as well as a DSL connection. None of
 these are due to the Sattelite connection I use at home, and on an older
 version of WebPositive, in an earlier version of HAIKU,  I do not
 experiance these extreemly slow page loads even on the Sattelite internet
 connection. I believe that the Internet connection can be ruled ouit.

 > Until we get some hard numbers and something that others can reproduce,
 I suspect this ticket will go nowhere - as it's too subjective and vague
 at this point.
