Website Page Size Still Matters. At least for Pros

CHUN9PAUYAA3I9uPreviously I noted that these days size of the web page doesn’t matter any more in terms of paying attention to users with low speed or limited internet access. Yes , it’s true, accessing your monster website page is not a problem for most users but speed will be noticeable. Not only speed of average connection to Internet went up.
