How To Make Your Websites Faster On Mobile Devices

By Johan Johansson

A recent study1 (PDF) found that more than 80% of people are disappointed with the experience of browsing Web on mobile devices and would use their smartphones more if the browsing experience improved.

This isn’t surprising when 64% of smartphone users2 expect websites to load in 4 seconds or less, while the average website takes more than twice that amount, at 9 seconds. This chapter explains techniques you can use to make your websites faster on mobile devices.
