You've got to remember as well that in computational terms, we're normally talking of microseconds to tiny seconds here, people don't generally care about these fractions of time (as long as it's not their first visit to a site), users are more forgiving too if they have actioned the load time, i.e. they've clicked a button somewhere along the line.
