 It's not perfect, but the latency and general user experience is definitely improved when using Parsec over Paperspace'​s in-browser tool. The tradeoff is that it is not available from anywhere; only machines that have Parsec installed can access this window(s) in a cloud, while boxes provisioned directly through Paperspace are available anywhere I have access to a web browser. Additionally,​ Paperspace provides some great tools for managing these machines which Parsec does not, including cloning them, backing up the hard drive, upgrading or downgrading CPUs or RAM, adding public IP addresses, and doing other fancy things that swing it a smidgen closer to being a cloud hosting platform rather than merely a remote workspace. It's not perfect, but the latency and general user experience is definitely improved when using Parsec over Paperspace'​s in-browser tool.
