As well as how well you write your program...  It does seem however,
that nearly every dynamically generated site that I've come across
behaves like it's on a 16 MHz 486.

Many things will not cache URIs with parameters.

e.g. <http://example.com/cgi?some+parameters>

In the belief that they might be caching something that they really
shouldn't.

That actually was my main concern (no local caching).  Time and time
again I've used incredibly slow HTTPS sites where nothing is cacheable.
I can't back track (nothing loads, or the server throws a wobbly).  I
can only navigate via the links on the page.  Tough luck if the idiot
webmaster made it impossible to go back to where you need to go.
