NET. But for the widgets that are loading for the first time on the new tab, it’s not a postback for them.

The browser takes about 200 to 400 ms to reach the server and come back to the browser to download a file. So, each script file can waste 200 to 400 ms, and if there are five scripts, then the application spends one second on each network roundtrip. Now, add the total download time for the files, and it could easily take 10 seconds for 5 large scripts. So, you need to seriously think about (and test) how to optimize script file size and reduce network roundtrips as much as possible.
