HTML parsing is ridiculously slow, causing huge performance issues for interacting with web applications. Identifying a single element can take up to 15 seconds even though "Match Index" was activated. Still, there seems to be a very ineffecient HTML parsing going on and a bad implementation of how to filter elements with the selected attributes (selecting more attributes will increase the identification time, which makes no sense unless the whole HTML is parsed again for every filter).

Using webdriver api could make things much better both in terms of speed and being human-like in interacting with elements (webdriver actions trigger js, unlike current blueprism write stages). Also proper xpath support is nice.
