Okay, this one has some minor 'issues' that I'm aware of on the splash page, but what I'm looking for is a test of load time (heh heh, I said 'load') and overall speed of the rollovers, etc...<br><br>Yes, I know- it's another gardening site...(sigh)<br><br>Click here to take a look!<br><br>[color:red]Hold on...it's time for a</font color=red><br>

One of the slogans our marketing people use, is: "7 seconds it all it takes for you to loose a customer".<br><br>I'm sure you have a much better communication infrastructure in the U.S. and your targeted visitors jump over less routers than I would, but it took roughly 30 seconds for just the roll-overs to finish loading. I admire the graphical design, it's really nice and shows class and elegence. However, do your best to reduce the time it takes to load the main page as much as you can.<br><br>
I got a load time of 6 to 7 seconds on cable modem over airport to my iBook on the main (splash) page. - probably the pre-loading of the rollovers - so that's ok.<br><br>I think this site is pretty good as far as speed goes, as long as you are on broadband. Perhaps if you built the graphics and saved as Flash files they would load faster on dial-up accounts.<br><br>

I would rather wait for a site to load - than to go download, install and then come back.<br><br>Just my consumer moment.<br><br>
