Harry - apologies for not acknowledging your post sooner! I agree about user friendliness and building/designing a site that loads as fast as possible. There is always some kind of trade-off however, and a fast loading page will impinge on our preferred design / navigation / amount of content. I suppose the question is, although I want to make it load as fast as possible, are their other stats to show what people will find acceptable?
I'm hoping that your 4 second rule is slightly bendable!
