I am also a person who relies on Diatheke with a fast server,
but even when I go to another computer (i.e. at work) partially due to
network traffic, my computer is often still faster than some of the ones
that had been mentioned. If there is a move to make a browser
attachment, it SHOULD in my opinion include the option of specifying a
Would the idea thought of add any functionality or would it be
just yet another front-end to something that is already a front-end,
thus slowing things down?

Some guys (including me) use diatheke locally (run web server and
browser on the same PC). In this case a slow web server (Apache is)
causes more delay than the browser. So throwing away web server from the
system would increase speed several times!
