yep, it is slower in some areas, and some pages dont load - simply because its not IE or netscape. remember, "to take advantage of this site it is recommended you use IE 6.0 or higher".. i get the same errors (can't read abc or cbs news) on my mozilla firefox browser on my desktop. i wish mozilla firefox would make it for ppc with easy 5 way support....oh! the joys of tab browsing.
i wouldn't say netfront is a pos, but its not tweeked enough for ppcOS yet. they could use the 5 way and tab much better, and ask you at the start (much like firefox on a pc does) if you want to import your favorites from pie. i'm still waiting for the browser that supports 5 way fully: up/down = scroll in page and left/right select links within viewing window.
