Hi Vinay,
No, using native mysql_* statement isn't always faster. Advantages are
obvious, as mentioned in the article you shared (object mapping, security,
performance), there's always things like caching and other stuff you don't
want to reinvent the wheel for and on big projects tend to be really
useful. So imho it's better using things like pdo.
Another thing... try using ORM http://redbeanphp.com sliced my dev type in
4 :)
