"Not everyone is blessed with a high-speed Internet connection. Even if everyone were, there can be hundreds of reasons why your Web application seems slow and sluggish. In this age of ever-increasing broadband speed, don't think that you shouldn't pay attention to page load times. Shave off valuable seconds of your page load times and even more valuable milliseconds of your request and response times. You'll create a better experience for your visitors.

"After reading this article, you will have a better understanding of the basics of Web page load time optimization. You'll also have the tools and knowledge to better identify and judge slow-loading page segments and bottlenecks.

Ideally, you should have Mozilla Firefox installed. You should also have an understanding of Web development in general. The topics involved in this article are not difficult, but they'll "click" faster if you know about topics such as Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), Cascading Style Sheet (CSS), and the JavaScript programming language. You do not need an integrated development environment (IDE): You can just follow along with your favorite editor."
