Modern day client-side code shares a lot of responsibilities, which introduced a new kind of application, referred to as the single-page application (SPA). In an SPA, all the necessary assets are retrieved with a single page load, or dynamically loaded and added to the page as necessary. Some examples of SPAs are Gmail and the StackEdit editor.
SPAs are good at interactivity because they keep communications with the server as low as possible. However, they do have some problems. Let’s dig in.
As SPAs download all the required data during the initial load, the first load-up is slower than normal. If the load times are too long, it can lead to an increased bounce rate, and ultimately a loss of revenue. According to a research, “a 10ms increase in page load time costs the site $250K in revenue annually.”
