I’ve been doing some performance work on Devex-Templates lately and spent some time reading up on web optimisation and compression techniques. While there are many many articles about optimising websites around, one excellent one I’ve been referring to is http://developer.yahoo.com/performance/rules.html. It covers all the usual ground, but there are a few ideas I’d not heard before and some nice tips, so I thought it was working linking to.
While on the topic of optimisation, I might as well also put a pointer to a decent analysis tool so you can check the load times of your website: WebPageAnalyzer.com. I should probably note that I’m not affiliated to either of these websites, merely a grateful user.
