IB stand alone or browser based?

  1. Still using Ib. I was wondering if browser based would be quicker in getting your orders executed?
    I have a pretty fast machine (thank you Gnome) and my speed is 3m.
    So which is better?
  2. Possibly they are the same.

    But browser based adds something else to your communications/processing path so logically is slower. I'd only use bb if I absolutely needed the latest version.

    the browser based and standalone tws are the exact same code.
