On my PWS 433a with HP 700/RX X terminal, Galeon is hardly or nothing
faster than Mozilla. At least, as far as I have been able to see, since
it crashes quite easily. For instance, with a floating point exception

When a complete window refresh is needed (such as after a workspace
switch or a window-unshade, Galeon appears slower because it first
updates its own frame and then the webpage. Mozilla first updates the
webpage and only then its own frame (with buttons and URL-bar &c). This
appears to be faster, although a small test seems to show that it
depends on the contents of the page, which one is actually finished
