What Are Your Performance/speed Requirements?

What are your performance/speed requirements on your webproject(s)?

How fast should a page load?

< 250 ms

< 500 ms

< 1 s

< 3 s

< 5 s


I’m usually content with avergae load times < 0.3s. And everything lower than 0.05s makes me very, very happy :D

That’s the numbers for the frontend, though. I don’t mind if some statistics in the backend take up to 1.2s to render.


It depends from the site!!

maximum 1 sec is very good but 250ms is excellent

google (for me without query) loads in 300ms (without cache)

google with a mean query loads in 500ms (without cache)

so it is dependent by many parameters…
