What's considered a good loading time for the Chat widget? What sorts of things can affect its loading time?
About 2-3 seconds is within the expected performance of the widget and would be considered a perfectly good loading time.
There are a number of different factors that can affect the load time of the widget, particularly its location. We typically recommend placing the widget code in the header or footer of the page. This applies to both the standalone Chat widget and the Web Widget.
