slower, but it generally isn't enough slower to hamper a user interface.
It's like the old joke about two guys being chased by a bear, and one stops
to put on his running shoes. The other says "why are you wasting time -
you can't outrun a bear", and the first says "I don't have to, I just have
to outrun you!". In any user interface, you generally don't have to run
really fast, just fast enough not to hamper the user.
