Speed is an important matter to consider with website design. Visitors are easily turned away by slow loading sites, and Google uses page speed as a search ranking factor. Poorly optimized websites can be laggy even after they’re done loading, which certainly makes for a poor user experience.
There are many aspects of web development that affect page load times. Large images, heavy scripts, and unused code can greatly slow down site performance, while gzip compression, browser caching, and lossless image optimization are essential for a quick and nimble page.
