Page load speed and civilisation
October 11th, 2012 by ravi

John Gruber infers the below from the selling points of Marco Arment’s new iOS Magazine:

Says a lot about the state of the magazine industry that things like loading quickly and allowing you to select text make the app stand out from the crowd.

He means it, I think, in the sense that page load speed is so obvious a need that it should be available from all vendors/producers. I however wonder what it says about civilisation that page load speed is a criteria at all. What is wrong with waiting a few extra milliseconds to read something valuable?
