Hi all

Open discussion on usability and performance

Many studies have been done to try and measure a users attention span when using web sites, many seem to conclude its around 5-10 seconds before users jump to another site that is more performant.
I heard earlier this year that google now use performance of a web site in its rankings...

I have regualar discussions with web site developers who disagree that usability actual includes "Performance" or " Response time" ...

have a look at www.useit.com and search for performance ... some interesting reading
