When it comes to the need for speed, Maverick and Goose aren’t the only ones feeling it. The rest of America is, too.

Internet users are getting more impatient as time goes on. In fact, they’re so impatient that 25 percent of Americans will abandon a website that doesn’t load in less than four seconds. And 50 percent will move on from a mobile site that takes more than 10 seconds to load. This need for speed isn’t just about user convenience, however. It’s about online retailers as well. Amazon would lose $1.6 billion in sales every year if its site took one more second to load. That’s right, one second could potentially cost Amazon more than a billion dollars in revenue.
