What are the disadvantages of selenium webdriver over selenium 1.0

The Selenium Server provides Selenium-RC functionality, which is primarily used for Selenium 1.0 backwards compatibility.

Since WebDriver uses completely different technology to interact with the browsers, the Selenium Server is not needed. Selenium-WebDriver makes direct calls to the browser using each browser's native support for automation. Selenium-RC however requires the Selenium- Server to inject JavaScript into the browser and to then translate messages from your test program’s language-specific Selenium client library into commands that invoke the JavaScript commands which in turn, automate the AUT from within the browser. In short, if you’re using Selenium-WebDriver, you don’t need the Selenium-Server.
