Discussion on: My first Web3 page with IPFS

Not that sure about the speed. Free IPFS comes with a major restriction from what I recall: the data will be cached in a node when the person operating the node access your data. Otherwise there is a pin fee (as you operate from a pinning service) to deploy and control a CDN like service on IPFS.
Another disadvantage is the fact that the cache can be cleared faster than expected removing the data from your users...
So as of today I'm not convinced by web 3 for this type of application, unless you want to circumvent some sort of censorship.
