Magento 2 does not force visitors to register which means they can check out as guests without having to go through any registration process.
Magento 2 increases the load speed by removing the temporary malfunction. Though, it automatically identifies the registered customers based on their email ID. Magento 2 makes it easy for the users to see everything they have ordered even before placing an order. All the up gradation features reduce the checkout friction which causes cart abandonment rates.
Page Load Speed
As per research, 40 per cent visitors leave the website if it takes more than ten seconds because customers expect a site to load within seconds and in this way you lose almost all the visitors before they turn into customers.
Without a doubt, Magento 2 is better than Magento 1. It comes with improved features that increase the performance speed of a store. Magento uses Varnish cache and HTTP to cache common requests. This makes the task easy for admin
users to create and edit eCommerce about the product details without any clash in Magento 2. Magento 2 is 50 per cent faster than Magento 1 when it comes to page loading speed.
Caching boost the site performance but it can only happen when it is done correctly. Full-Page Caching (FPC) is available in both community and enterprise edition.

As per the recent survey, more than 80 per cent of internet traffic comes from mobile devices. Magento 1 does not completely support such kind of users whereas Magento 2 is optimized for mobile use for different screen sizes.
