I haven't done any serious testing or benchmarking, but I'm guessing that each servers has its own advantages depending of use cases.<br>With a slow network, Yaws can be a good solution as it should be able to handle a lot of concurrent connections even if its efficiency for each request is a bit less. Am I wrong?

It doesn't seem optimized for it either, either the runtime or the language. erlang doesn't have a lot of low-level IO primitives to really push bits fast. And it probably won't, since erlang is more portable than nginx and lighttpd.
