Don't Delay: Four in 10 internet users in the UK, US and Sweden will navigate away from a website if forced to wait more than 10 seconds for the site to respond, and another 11% would leave within 5 seconds, according to a study by performance monitoring firm Apica. Potentially worse, 60% of respondents said they would be less loyal toward a brand after experiencing poor website or app performance.
