stats needed

 3:03 pm on Sep 18, 2001 (gmt 0)

Recently I read some stats on how long people generally wait for a page to load before leaving, and I'm not sure if it was on here. If anyone could point to those stats it would be greatly appreciated. Also anyone know where I can find stats on browser resolutions used?

I don't have anything concrete, but I wouldn't expect to have anyone wait for more than 10 seconds......that is my limit as well.


Here are a few sites to look through:

[useit.com...] - Jakob Nielsen
[upsdell.com...] - Tons of resources

I'd say we've narrowed it to a range between 8-20 seconds for the first page visited... longer for internal pages.

Here are my extreme-dm resolution stats from a page that averages 2k uniques/day. This represents an 18 month period, so to adjust to current use you should probably add a percentage point or two to the higher resolutions, taking them from 640.

800x600 - 61.14%

1024x768 - 22.54%

640x480 - 11.29%

Checking a (much less visited) page that's only been on extreme-dm since April seems to confirm the migration to higher res

800x600 - 62.84%

1024x768 - 23.39%

640x480 - 8.20%

Both of these are general interest sites (travel, real estate), tech-oriented sites would likely be skewed to higher res.
