Testing at 1.6 sec but feels way slower - cybersprout - 06-28-2016 01:47 AM

I ran a test on explorealex.com and the results came back at 1.6 seconds for the first view. The site is fairly lean and I would expect it to be decently quick but it feels terribly slow when actually navigating through the site and I'm on a very fast connection.

Any insight is much appreciated!

Try turning Rocket Loader off and tuning JavaScript server side. Rocket Loader slows page to page navigation and rendering times, pretty dramatically in most instances.
