I wrote a small browser in PyQT4 using QWebView, of course. The browser runs
well and does what I need, but when I deployed it to my thin clients, it was
far to slow to use.
In fact, most modern browsers were; I had to settle on Epiphany because all
the other browsers I tried were far to slow at showing or interacting with
HTML controls (text inputs, drop-downs, etc).
I tried disabling all QT effects in the Trolltech.conf file, and various
graphicssystem settings on Qapplication, but it's still slow.
Are there any other places where graphical effects can be toned down or
optimized? I still notice a bit of a fade-in effect on drop-downs even when
all QT Gui effects are disabled, and this is rendering really badly on the
thin clients (slow and lots of screen artifacts).
