Let Assume that You are visiting a site through search engine result page. First result site taking 15 seconds to load. Second result site taking 2 seconds to load. Which one would you prefer?

    Awesome article, but I’m into flash web design. The learning and rendering of code somehow never appealed to me. My latest digital triumph is quite an amazing thing actually. I designed a newer way to surf the web entirely, its called FreeTop360. It is the very first ‘surf engine’ to ever grace it’s presence onto the web. It’s actually a free virtual desktop designed to help users navigate the most useful web locations, and web applications. Give it a spin if you like it’s bound to stir up convo and inspiration as well. Not a drop of code was put into its development.
