Speed continues to be really underestimated. Little known fact: Amazon internal testing showed that 100ms extra pageload time means 1% less sales. Google tests show that 500ms longer pageload (half a second) means 20% less traffic.

Meditate on those numbers for a moment, and then tell me your webteam takes speed seriously enough.
