    I have been developing a page using telerik controls,
    My page contains a  multiView with 4 views and a radtoolbar and a radmenu
    one view containing a radgrid and the others containg radcombo boxes and radtextboxes

    My problem is that it takes time loading (almost 1.9 seconds) and the page size is almost 1.5 MB
    which is not accepted for some clients.

    Is there any fix for this problem?

    Even with following the optimization tips the payload is far too large.

    For a page with just a menu on it, the Javascript comes in at ~500kb.  This translates to 100KB compressed - but this is still too large.

    Some of this is due to the Microsoft Ajax scripts.  With version 4.0 you are able to choose which scripts are needed, and only include those, so you don't need them all.

    I hope that telerik will follow a similar approach, so that you don't have to include a load of code that you don't use.  This would help a lot.

    I really like the telerik controls, but not everyone that visits my sites have really fast internet connections.  a large part of the world is still using modems, or have less than fast broadband. 

    Another great article that can help: What is really good, is that all the javascript is put at the bottom of the page, after the body. So, at least the "perception" is that the page is loading fast....  Ideally, the scriptmanager would have done this part of it (it just "combines")
