It is found to be the second culprit for reducing the website speed. According to Wikipedia, the definition of JavaScript is It is a text-based programming language used both on client and server-side. It is used for giving the interactive element to the webpage.

As similar to CSS JavaScript also helps to design a webpage so it takes time to load all its components. The JavaScript that is on the server takes more time to respond which increases the website loading time.


Without any JavaScript, your web page will look awkward. The user coming on your site will not have better experience and interaction which can decrease the traffic.
