    Ur problem, i gess, not in type of a column.
    U have problem in client side of application.

    What web application server u are using?
    What language and driver is using?

    U have to find decision on client side.

    We have many applications with CLOB/BLOB fields in web envifonment,
    and we haven't any problems with this type of field.

    I read somewhere before and from what I understand that CLOB will degrade performance of your database.

    Is that right to say ???

    I've never seen that CLOB itself degrades performance.
    Application using CLOBs in an improper way could do that, though.
