    Hi Ibrahim

    'It depends' a little on what you are querying and the size of your site.

    There is a really good article on Skrift by @attackmonkey that examines how long each approach takes to bring back content in certain circumstances:

    The conclusion is broadly that on smaller sites, XPath is the most efficient, if I need to find a 'NewsSection' landing page, I'll likely use XPath, as I know where it's defined in the content tree structure, nothing will be faster!... but If I'm implementing filtering by different criteria and paging of results eg searching a News Section, then I'd favour Examine...
