How to accelerate the page's display?

Hi,I am working on a web application to be deployed soon,this web
application has adopted plenty of ajax characteristics,which means a lot
of javascripts have been included,which reach a sum of about 200k bytes
of all.Therefore,at first time when the web application is loaded,the
users will have to wait for a long time which is not friendly, Is there
exist any scheme to accelerate the page’s display?For example,is it able
to display partof the page layout first with the javascripts are
downloaded simultaneously? Thanks all!

I usually make a different Javascript for every page I have. I have
this Rails helper that has my template auto load only the Javascript
files named after my page. That way the user will only have to
download a JS file if the page requires it and if the user already has
that JS file, they shouldn’t have to download it again.

Use mod_deflate on your webserver, it will compress the page before
sending it, should shave off quite a few seconds if the total size
(and not the processing) is your bottleneck. The Javascripts will be
cached by the browser after the first load, so it should be a one
time operation anyway.
