How long do you wait for a Web page to load? Five seconds? Ten? Do you back out and find another source of information if the one you're looking for doesn't deliver quickly enough? How many searches does Google get every single day? How much does Amazon make every day (whatever you're going to guess, it's probably not enough!)?

All these questions and more are answered in Fast Facts: The Need for Speedy Information Online. In this article, I take a look at how our information gathering habits on the Web have changed dramatically in the last few years, along with some very interesting statistics about how fast information is delivered to us. Check it out!
