It is equally good. For quick&dirty stuff I use plain old cgi.
I use FastCGI for performance critical external apps.
For some internal apps, I use standalone http server.

The web stack of FPC is such that it does not matter which one you use.
You can simply recompile your app with a different uses clause and it is
switched from cgi/fastcgi/standalone.
The rest is a matter of configuring your webserver...
