Faster = better

People don't like to wait, especially online.
If a web page takes too long to load, visitors simply leave and often don't come back.
'Slow' is the biggest frustration on the web.

Load time is directly related to the financial performance of the website.
Amazon noticed a 1% drop in sales for every 0.1 second the site loaded slower. In an AB test, Google raised the number of search results per page from 10 to 30. Load time went up from 0.5 to 0.9 seconds average. The number of search results and ad revenues dropped 20%!
