'Latency' refers to the delay experienced within a system, notably in networks and internet connectivity. It is the duration taken for a data packet to travel, be processed, and reach its destination.

Minimizing latency is essential for the performance of web applications, particularly for activities needing real-time interaction. High latency can cause noticeable lags, adversely affecting the user experience and the responsiveness of websites or applications.
