Another example where info is slower is this
very common situation.

1. You look something up with info and use it.

2. You look something else up and use that.

3, or I mean 1b - because the first thing
didn't quite work! Now, with info, you have to
navigate back to that node to see what it
really said. And maybe between steps 1 and 2,
you looked up something else still, which you
didn't use, which might even belong to some
different program, etc. etc.!

With a text file, you bring that file up -
which is always the same for a given piece of
software - and make a search up or down in
the document.

this is faster and easier, again using only the
everyday commands and finger-habits which has
nothing to do with info or any other major or
minor mode.
