We have travelled with easyjet who do what car864 says and multiload the bus but when we have done this with Ryanair they kept people inside the terminal building untill the speedy boarders were seated on the 'plane

They did this to us too (Easyjet) a few times.
With Ryanair it seems better organised in terms of priority boarding at both ends. I remember TWICE in the same year the Easyjet 05:55 Gatwick departure was delayed between 1 and 2 hours - not a technical fault or delay - the aircraft was on the stand - however, on both occasions theree was no cabin crew which can only be labelled as "mis-management" and lack of any kind of contingency in my opinion.
I always use priority/speedy (depending on Ryan or Easy) as I like to choose my seat for myself and my partner - purely based on the fact that I am a bit of an airplane enthusiast and like to choose the correct side of the plane for the best views in both directions.
I know it is expensive but I have seen many families split up because they didn't select speedy/priority.
I actually think the whole thing is a con. When I first travelled to Corfu there were NO budget airlines and you were allocated a seat on the traditional charters which was great because I used to ensure I never rushed into the queue at the departure gate and always enjoyed that last dreg of coffee (or Amstel!!! before boarding. Bags were free back then too!
