Does size matter? It does when it comes to website performance. Being fast is good. And bigger is not better. In the Keynote March 3-Screen Shootout we look at websites likely to see heavy traffic during the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Now, let’s look at popular food sites for sports enthusiasts and see the impact of site size:
Pizza Hut continued its run as the best Food site in performance, averaging only 2.04 seconds. Subway was on the other end of the spectrum, averaging 3.39 seconds for the five day period.
Pizza Hut averaged around the least 866KB while Subway and Wingstop averaged the most with a nearly identical 3.36MB.
Pizza Hut once again was the best, averaging only 1.35 seconds. Meanwhile Quiznos trailed the Food pack for tablets, averaging 3.46 seconds.
