Last week, we released our quarterly State of the Union for ecommerce web performance, which, among other things, found that:
- The median top 100 retail site takes 6.2 seconds to render primary content and 10.7 seconds to fully load.
- 17% of the top 100 pages took 10 seconds or longer to load their feature content. Only 14% delivered an optimal sub-3-second user experience.
- The median top 100 page is 1677 KB in size — 67% larger than it was just one year ago, when the median page was 1007 KB.
These findings and more — including Time to Interact and Load Time for the ten fastest sites — are illustrated in this set of infographics. Please feel free to download and share them. And if you have any questions about our research or findings, don’t hesitate to ask me.
