It is practically instantaneous here. The only observable delay (less
than a second) is for fetching the data.

I don't think so.

Use whatever works for you.

I suggest an experiment: create a local copy of that web page on your
computer and visit it with eww (something like M-x eww [enter]
file:///path/to/the/html/file). See if takes too long. Repeat it running
Emacs with "emacs -Q" and see if the delay goes away.
