No matter how interesting, beautiful, or cleverly interactive your web pages are, if they take more than two or three seconds to render, whether on a desktop or a mobile device, your visitors will become restless.
There are a number of best practices you can implement in order to improve both the real and perceived user experiences for your visitors. These best practices fall into six main camps:
- Reduce the number of HTTP requests required to fetch the resources for each page.
- Reduce the size of the payload needed to fulfill each request.
- Optimize client-side processing priorities and script execution efficiency.
- Manage third-party scripts.
- Improve the users's perception of page speed.
- Continuously monitor, measure, and analyze performance.
