Actually, the problem is not the speed of ocaml code, but of Tk's text
widget. Ocamlbrowser uses lots of tags for text coloring, and this
slows the text widget. If somebody knows of a more efficient way to do
Another approach would be to port ocamlbrowser to GTK, but I never
found the time to finish it.
