Why Quick Loading Web Pages?

Unless you rely ONLY on users with high speed Internet connections, you must take into consideration the quick loading issue for your web pages. According to statistics, a first-time visitor will not "waste" more than 5 seconds until seing the content of your web page or, at least, until he/she gets an idea about what the web page is about. This means that for an average tranfer rate of 3 Kbytes per second your web page must take maximum 15 Kbytes of disk space.
If we understand this as being the size of all the displayed elements (page's script + graphics + content), then 15 KB doesn't seem so much, right? Let's see what we can put into 15 KB:

- one graphic element (your web optimized logo) with a disk size around 1Kb
- 1000 words of content (you should have content-rich pages)
- 3 KB of script (HTML, CSS)
- another graphic element of, let's say, 2 KB (your linking partner's banner etc.)

It is not so bad, is it? Of course, if you need to have pictures on your page, you will not be able to keep size within 15Kb. But even so, if in 5 seconds from click your logo and your content are displyed on your visitor's screen, then it is OK. If the visitor is interested, he will wait another 5 seconds or more for your images to load.
