I greet this development with cautious optimism. In a bid to respond to services like Facebook's 'instant articles' Google and Twitter are releasing an open framework that acceperates web and (especially) mobile delivery of articles. It does things like auto-caching, single-load Javascript, and the like. The consensus is that the optimal load time for a web page is 'instantly'. "How much quicker is "instantly"? According to Google, early testing with with a simulated 3G connection and a simulated Nexus 5 showed improvements of between 15 to 85 percent." See also the Official Google Blog.
