What's better: Domino using Notes client or Domino on the Web?

For the purpose of comparison, which is better in performance: a Domino application using Notes client or a Domino application on the Web? In what ratio is one of them better than the other (for example: Domino application on Notes is three times better than the Web application)?

We are converting a Domino Workflow application to be Web-based, but it is expected that the new application will be capable of less performance than the old application on Notes. The question is: Given the same machine configurations, which will be better in performance, the Web application or the native Domino application?
Sorry. I can't answer that with an easy ratio. It all comes down to how the application is coded.

If you have a Notes client application that you extend to also be useable in a browser you could experience better or worse performance both on the server and on the client. It all comes down to how you implement the Web interface, and of course it also depends on how the original Notes interface was coded.
