Check my sites load time

    I have had some people say that my site - http://www.skilledgraphics.com - Loads slowly, however some people say its fine.

    Loads fairly fast for me, even after deleting cache and temp files.
    SEMrush
    There is some flash, a live chat widget, but i cant see any reason why it would be loading slow.

    I have run some speed test, but get mixed results.

    Does it load fast for you? Any ideas at all?

    IT is absolutely OK I tested it also with a web site speed test which said your site only weighs 20kb which is not that much

    Yeah, seems like its always web hosting companies that tell me its slow, I'm starting to believe its just a marketing strategy.

    Thanks for checking! :)

    seems ok. you can use firebug to check load times.

    It's not too slow but it took longer than some web pages to load - about 4 seconds.

    yeah, 4 secs isnt tooooo bad though, could be better, but i wouldn't tell someone their site was slow, for just 4 secs.

    I dont know,

    I appreciate everyone's help.

    The site loaded in decent time. It wasn't stellar fast, but I will say I really like the subtle animation on the banner! Nice job with the site.

    Thanks, subtle was definitely the goal. Wanted it to be attractive yet not distracting.

    Loading takes 4-5 seconds for me.

    While that's not by any means "bad," it's also not necessarily a good thing.
