In the past web designers had no option but to focus on page load times, it was a darker time when internet connection speeds rarely went over 52kb. Times have changed, internet speeds have dramatically improved and as a result the allowance and tolerance for heavier web pages has increased as they meet user demand for functionality and the designers creative appetite.
Why worry now about page load times? There are a lot of rumors that Google are ranking sites by there load times, and the chances are the rest of the search engines will jump on-board as well. The answer is yes, we really do need to focus on page load times, yet again.
