        Don't worry! This is just a non-optimized dev version, obviously. On a production site, you can cache the different files very easily!

        Oh also, here's a bit of stats related:

        "By optimizing his site, Steve was able to reduce his site’s average response time from 4.5 to 2.5 seconds. The business results were staggering:
        46 percent increase in page views
        40 percent increase in time on site
        12 percent decrease in bounce rates
        74 percent increase in average order size"

        If you want to reach people the easiest way to do it is to spend an hour paying attention to how fast your site loads.

        Seriously, this site will load in about 20 minutes on an older computer or a bad connection. For the purposes of accessibility you need to pay attention tp load time optimizations. If this is supposed to be a live version the web team should be ashamed.
