I had (potentially incorrectly) hoped that 8.1 Workstation would have better performance than the web browser version we had been using on our HMIs. After upgrading I can see and was able to video tape about a 1-2 second slower loading time on some screens when using workstation compared to the same application running in Chrome on the same hardware. It did seem that the embedded views we are inheriting from a parent project were considerably slower.
On the positive and unexpected side the browser performance seems to be better after the upgrade.
Just curious if there is a known/expected performance difference between workstation and browser before we decide which route to stick with.
