I haven't tried it myself either, but in the "Expected Performance" it claims
that Netscape over dialup with xdpc is "near impossible".
Now true while over dialup I don't tend to view porn sites on a remote VNC
session but I find web browsing to be alright, albeit a little blocky due to
VNC not seeing screen updates. Certainly not impossible though.
1- The development versions of TightVNC claim to have a display driver which
eliminates that problem and doesn't consume CPU like a ravenous bulimec.
