Sample text

For example, based on the assumption that most web companies choose a data center close to their offices, your web client at work is probably located close to your current web servers. Thus, if you run a test from your browser at work, the response times without using a CDN are often best case. It’s important to remember that most of your users are not located that close to your web servers. To measure the true impact of switching to a CDN, you need to measure the response times from multiple geographic locations.

In this chapter, I describe techniques for eliminating HTTP requests while avoiding the difficult tradeoff decisions between performance and design. These techniques include using image maps, CSS sprites, inline images, and combined scripts and stylesheets. Using these techniques reduces response times of the example pages by as much as 50%. Image Maps In its simplest form, a hyperlink associates the destination URL with some text. A prettier alternative is to associate the hyperlink with an image, for example in navbars and buttons.

Com. Browsers that support deflate also support gzip, but several browsers that support gzip do not support deflate, so gzip is the preferred method of compression. What to Compress Servers choose what to gzip based on file type, but are typically too limited in what they are configured to compress. Many web sites gzip their HTML documents. It’s also worthwhile to gzip your scripts and stylesheets, but many web sites miss this opportunity (in fact, it’s worthwhile to compress any text response including XML and JSON, but the focus here is on scripts and stylesheets since they’re the most prevalent).
