I'm confused. When I load my site http://phoenixchange.com the graphics "banner unfolds" slowly down the page. It's "only" about 70kb and I can't shrink it anymore (used PNGOUT on it etc).
But when I look at other sites e.g. the Dorothy Perkins site http://www.dorothyperkins.com their "huge" photographs, a page of nothing but photographs loads up almost instantaneously.
(this is loading both the sites for the first time, after deleting the cache etc)
How does DP get this speed of loading??
Can anyone help me understand what's going on here?
