Are the users really affected by the couple of seconds that the web page takes a couple seconds longer to load? In worst cases, we are talking about just a couple of seconds and in most cases a second or milliseconds. Is it really that big of an issue though or are developers just stressing over it too much?

It's all about long term thinking. 10-50 visitor won't burden a single server. How about 1000 concurrent connection for a single instance? Yeah too hyperbolic but it's best to prepare than sorry :)

Speaking of performance, I have benchmark reference for you dizzy.zone/2018/01/23/Kestrel-vs-G...

Cheers.

There is a short blog post by Cloudflare on this topic. Fast load times are invaluable when it comes to offering services that involve money.
If it's just some hobby blog or whatever then a mediocre optimised website most likely won't hurt 'cause the people visiting the page are interested in the topic nonetheless. But if you're talking pure business... you want your websites to go fast

Yes because a couple of seconds is a long time

If this site provide a service, and me as a potential customer do not care much, I may close the tab before the page even loads. Imagine that there are a team of UX, UI and copy writers done great work to catch your attention to their service. All that may not get noticed, if the page itself took ages to load.

Well, there again as Athaariq mentioned, it depends on the size of connections. If you have a small web application, UX, UI and copywriting teams have done a excellent job, the loading performance really won't be that big of a factor and the content will be shown.
But if it's a bigger site, e.g. as mentioned with 1000+ concurrent connections on a single instance, then it will impact the performance.

So as I've come to a understanding, it depends on multiple factors.
