Latency is Our Biggest Enemy “In 2012, the average worldwide RTT to Google is still ~100ms, and ~50-60ms within the US.” “we are looking at 100-1000ms RTT range on mobile” Ilya Grigorik http://www.igvita.com/2012/07/19/latency-the-new-web-performance-bottleneck/

Going Faster… http://www.ﬂickr.com/photos/mikebaird/2464769129/
Speeding Things Up - Some Basics ★ Compress ★ Minify ★ Reduce Requests ★ Cache ★ HTTP Keep-Alive ★ Use a CDN?
What’s the web made of? Images Scripts Stylesheets HTML Flash Other Composition of ‘average’ web page via httparchive.org
Bitmapped Images JPEG PNG GIF Optimise, Optimise, Optimise! (jpegmini, pngmini, Smush.it, ImageOptim, Gifsicle etc.)
New Devices, New Challenges... 2 x Resolution = 4 x Pixels! http://www.ﬂickr.com/photos/roopaw/6985954465
Some Alternatives CSS SVG FontsBitmaps still a challenge but interesting experiments around
It’s no longer a desktop world http://www.ﬂickr.com/photos/adactio/6960610178
Go “Mobile First” for Responsive Designs http://seesparkbox.com
Use “Right-sized” Images http://www.ﬂickr.com/photos/emzee/139794246Standards support (picture? srcset?) is coming but unclear when!Meanwhile services such as sencha.io, resrc.it and JS libraries -pictureﬁll.js, foresight.js can help.
Minimise browser blocking... http://www.ﬂickr.com/photos/barteko/6128499314
Parallel Downloads news.bbcimg.co.uk static.bbc.co.uk Domain Sharding increases number of parallel downloads but… …more connections may not be a good idea on mobile …may also interfere with multiplexing in protocols like SPDY
Get the <head> straight<!doctype html><html><head> CSS before JS <meta charset="utf-8"> Ideally one ﬁle* <title>This is my title<title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css" type="text/css" /> <script src="script.js"></script> . . Only JS needed . during page load</head> * Depends on size and whether major / minor breakpoints used
The Script Tag <script src=″…″></script> Until the script has executed, the rendering of all elements below is blocked!

Sites likeautotrader.co.uk don’t appear to be accessible, others likethe telegraph.co.uk are waiting on other components todownload (content from sites like cg-global.maxymiser.com,pixel.quantserve.com).” http://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2012/05/uk-virgin-media-broadband-isp-users-affected-by-website-routing-woes.html
