Americans Don’t Have Time For Slow Websites [INFOGRAPHIC]
Remember how your mother used to always tell you “patience is a virtue?” It turns out none of us took her advice.

Today, with lightning-speed data connections and optimized web browsers, online inquiries are answered in mere milliseconds — that is, until the website you’re pinging grinds to a halt.

The people at took a look at the impact of site speed on American browsing habits. For example, more than 3 billion Google searches are performed each day, but slowing the response time for results by even four-tenths of a second reduces that number by 8 million. When you multiply those lost users across major websites like Google and Amazon, you’re looking at serious amounts of missing revenue.

This infographic also explores how the “Google Generation” relates to a world that doesn’t always provide instant gratification. For example, many Americans now refuse to wait in line longer than 15 minutes. As always, time is money — but the Internet may have sent that equation into overdrive.

    That bearded man is always so angry. ;_;

    The idea of abandoning a purchase because it took more than a few seconds seems absurd though. Was it such an impulse buy to begin with that the interest in it only lasted an impulse? That kind of says a lot of very depressing things about the consumerist attitudes people have, and the idea that companies could stand to lose millions if not billions in revenue if it weren’t for the instantly self gratifying desires of their customers. I’m sure they know this about their customers too, and work not only to accommodate these customers but to encourage this attitude for the company’s own profits.

    At the end of this race called life, I want to finish last. No need rushing through things, all the time.
