Loading Speed of pages

Hello

I have been trying out Yacs when i found about it from opensourcecms.

I am really impressed by the number of features included in it.

But I am concerned with one thing and that is the loading speed of pages.

Presently im testing it under my localhost installation.

and pages takes usual 1+ second to load and sometimes the time goes upto 4 seconds.

This is really very slow.
