Lightning Experience LEX - lightning speed please!

Lightning Experience

In order for LEX to appeal to our users, it needs to react more quickly or at least be perceived to be faster - right now Lightning is a misnomer. 

We see a landing page while the screen loads, which shows the release logo, animated - it's distracting and appears to be much slower than Salesforce Classic, perhaps up to a couple of seconds. An embarrassed silence while I'm trying to show clients how much better LEX can be, but all they see is the equivalent of the "loading page" stopwatch or clock that you used to see in the 90's.

The reality might be that page loads are similar speed, but taking us to another screen while new new page is loading just makes it look slower. 

Go faster, please!

    Thank you again for your valuable feedback on Lightning Experience performance. We appreciate your patience as our Engineering, Product and Leadership teams worked to prioritize several key efforts to improve performance and customer experience.

    We are encouraged by the results of this investment and we have further improvements in the pipeline for the coming releases. That said, we want to hear from you - how is performance in the new Summer release? Please take a moment to respond to this poll on the Lightning Now Success Community:

    We hope our efforts have improved performance in your instance and we encourage you to provide qualitative feedback as comments below.

    The Summer '17 release included some measurable and significant improvements, specifically within load times of Record Home Pages and the Record Edit Panel. In addition, we focused on optimization efforts across Lightning Components, User Experience, use of the Salesforce application servers to reduce time and Parallelizing and coordination of API requests for data from the client browser to the Salesforce service.
