    I'm using Gmail.

    I think we should have a definitive answer by now so.. is sending from mail app actually slower than from browser? if yes, then why? (I'm talking about on OSX of course)

    Slower in what way? For the actual sending process? Time it takes for message to be delivered after sending?

    Yup, the whole process. From the time when we hit "send" to the time it's actually sent to recipient. I notice when I sent plain text there's a moment when the app tried to send the message contrary to the browser which is sent almost instantly.
