    26. 26. Rule 1: Make fewer HTTP requests <ul><li>CSS sprites </li></ul><ul><li>combined scripts, combined stylesheets </li></ul><ul><li>image maps </li></ul><ul><li>inline images </li></ul>
    27. 27. CSS Sprites – Preferred <ul><li>size of combined image is less </li></ul><ul><li>not supported in Opera 6 </li></ul>http://alistapart.com/articles/sprites <span style=&quot; background-image: url('sprites.gif'); background-position: -260px -90px;&quot;> </span>

    29. 29. Combined Scripts, Combined Stylesheets <ul><li>combining six scripts into one eliminates five HTTP requests </li></ul><ul><li>challenges: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>develop as separate modules </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>number of possible combinations vs. loading more than needed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>maximize browser cache </li></ul></ul><ul><li>one solution: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>dynamically combine and cache </li></ul></ul>
    30. 30. Rule 2: Use a CDN <ul><li>distribute your static content before distributing your dynamic content </li></ul>youtube.com Akamai yahoo.com wikipedia.org Akamai, Limelight myspace.com SAVVIS msn.com google.com Akamai, Mirror Image ebay.com cnn.com Akamai aol.com Akamai amazon.com
    31. 31. Rule 3: Add an Expires header <ul><li>not just for images </li></ul>26 days 0% 0/7 0/3 0/32 youtube.com 100% 75% 0% 80% 4% 55% 1% 48% 0% % n/a 4/4 1/1 23/23 yahoo.com 1 day 2/3 1/1 6/8 wikipedia.org 1 day 0/2 0/2 0/18 myspace.com 34 days 3/9 1/1 32/35 msn.com 454 days 0/1 0/1 1/23 froogle.google.com 140 days 0/7 0/2 16/20 ebay.com 227 days 2/11 0/2 0/138 cnn.com 217 days 6/18 1/1 23/43 aol.com 114 days 0/3 0/1 0/62 amazon.com Median Age Scripts Stylesheets Images
    32. 32. Rule 4: Gzip components <ul><li>you can affect users' download times </li></ul><ul><li>90%+ of browsers support compression </li></ul>
    33. 33. Gzip: not just for HTML <ul><li>gzip scripts, stylesheets, XML, JSON (not images, PDF) </li></ul>some some x youtube.com x x x yahoo.com x x x wikipedia.org x x x myspace.com deflate deflate x msn.com x x x froogle.google.com x ebay.com cnn.com some some x aol.com x amazon.com Stylesheets Scripts HTML
    34. 34. Gzip Edge Cases <ul><li><1% of browsers have problems with gzip </li></ul><ul><ul><li>IE 5.5: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q313712 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>IE 6.0: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q31249 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Netscape 3.x, 4.x </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>http://www.schroepl.net/projekte/mod_gzip/browser.htm </li></ul></ul><ul><li>consider adding Cache-Control: Private </li></ul><ul><li>remove ETags (Rule 13) </li></ul><ul><li>hard to diagnose; problem getting smaller </li></ul>
    35. 35. Rule 5: Put stylesheets at the top <ul><li>stylesheets block rendering in IE </li></ul><ul><ul><li>http://stevesouders.com/examples/css-bottom.php </li></ul></ul><ul><li>solution: put stylesheets in HEAD (per spec) </li></ul><ul><li>avoids Flash of Unstyled Content </li></ul><ul><li>use LINK (not @import) </li></ul>
    36. 36. Slowest is Fastest <ul><li>CSS at the bottom: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>resources load faster, but nothing renders </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CSS at the top: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>resources take longer, but render progressively </li></ul></ul><ul><li>@import at the top: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>same problems as bottom </li></ul></ul>right choice
    37. 37. Rule 6: Move scripts to the bottom <ul><li>scripts block parallel downloads across all hostnames </li></ul><ul><li>scripts block rendering of everything below them in the page </li></ul><ul><li>IE and FF </li></ul><ul><ul><li>http://stevesouders.com/examples/js-middle.php </li></ul></ul>
    38. 38. Rule 6: Move scripts to the bottom <ul><li>script defer attribute is not a solution </li></ul><ul><ul><li>blocks rendering and downloads in FF </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>slight blocking in IE </li></ul></ul><ul><li>solution: move them as low in the page as possible </li></ul>
    39. 39. Rule 7: Avoid CSS expressions <ul><li>used to set CSS properties dynamically in IE </li></ul><ul><ul><li>width: expression( </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>document.body.clientWidth < 600 ? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ 600px” : “auto” ); </li></ul></ul><ul><li>problem: expressions execute many times </li></ul><ul><ul><li>mouse move, key press, resize, scroll, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>http://stevesouders.com/examples/expression-counter.php </li></ul>
    40. 40. Rule 8: Make JS and CSS external <ul><li>inline: HTML document is bigger </li></ul><ul><li>external: more HTTP requests, but cached </li></ul><ul><li>variables </li></ul><ul><ul><li>page views per user (per session) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>empty vs. primed cache stats </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>component re-use </li></ul></ul><ul><li>external is typically better </li></ul><ul><ul><li>home pages may be an exception </li></ul></ul>
    41. 41. Post-Onload Download <ul><li>inline in front page </li></ul><ul><li>download external files after onload </li></ul><ul><ul><li>window.onload = downloadComponents; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>function downloadComponents() { </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>var elem = document.createElement(&quot;script&quot;); </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>elem.src = &quot;http://.../file1.js&quot;; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>document.body.appendChild(elem); </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>... </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>} </li></ul></ul><ul><li>speeds up secondary pages </li></ul>
    42. 42. Dynamic Inlining <ul><li>start with post-onload download </li></ul><ul><li>set cookie after components downloaded </li></ul><ul><li>server-side: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>if cookie, use external </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>else, do inline with post-onload download </li></ul></ul><ul><li>cookie expiration date is key </li></ul><ul><li>speeds up all pages </li></ul>
    43. 43. Rule 9: Reduce DNS lookups <ul><li>typically 20-120 ms </li></ul><ul><li>block parallel downloads </li></ul><ul><li>OS and browser both have DNS caches </li></ul>
    44. 44. Rule 10: Minify JavaScript minify inline scripts, too no yes no no yes yes yes no no no Minify External? no www.youtube.com yes www.yahoo.com no www.wikipedia.org no www.myspace.com yes www.msn.com yes froogle.google.com no www.ebay.com no www.cnn.com no www.aol.com no www.amazon.com Minify Inline?
    45. 45. Minify vs. Obfuscate minify – it's safer http://crockford.com/javascript/jsmin http://dojotoolkit.org/docs/shrinksafe not much difference Dojo Savings JSMin Savings Original 21K (25%) 17K (21%) 85K Average 10K (29%) 8K (22%) 34K www.youtube.com 16K (38%) 14K (34%) 42K www.wikipedia.org 24K (28%) 23K (27%) 88K www.myspace.com 24K (25%) 19K (20%) 98K www.cnn.com 4K (10%) 4K (10%) 44K www.aol.com 48K (24%) 31K (15%) 204K www.amazon.com
    46. 46. Rule 11: Avoid redirects <ul><li>3xx status codes – mostly 301 and 302 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Location: http://stevesouders.com/newuri </li></ul></ul><ul><li>add Expires headers to cache redirects </li></ul><ul><li>worst form of blocking </li></ul>http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec10.html

    48. 48. Rule 12: Remove duplicate scripts <ul><li>hurts performance </li></ul><ul><ul><li>extra HTTP requests (IE only) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>extra executions </li></ul></ul><ul><li>atypical? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>2 of 10 top sites contain duplicate scripts </li></ul></ul><ul><li>team size, # of scripts </li></ul>
    49. 49. Rule 13: Configure ETags <ul><li>unique identifier returned in response </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ETag: &quot;c8897e-aee-4165acf0&quot; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Last-Modified: Thu, 07 Oct 2004 20:54:08 GMT </li></ul></ul><ul><li>used in conditional GET requests </li></ul><ul><ul><li>If-None-Match: &quot;c8897e-aee-4165acf0&quot; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If-Modified-Since: Thu, 07 Oct 2004 20:54:08 GMT </li></ul></ul><ul><li>if ETag doesn't match, can't send 304 </li></ul>
    50. 50. The Problem with ETags <ul><li>ETag format </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Apache: inode -size-timestamp </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>IIS: Filetimestamp: ChangeNumber </li></ul></ul><ul><li>ETag for a single entity differs across servers, by default </li></ul><ul><li>Sites with >1 server return too few 304s </li></ul><ul><ul><li>((n-1)/n)% wasted downloads </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Remove them </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Apache: FileETag none </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>IIS: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922703/ </li></ul></ul>
    51. 51. Rule 14: Make AJAX cacheable <ul><li>XHR, JSON, iframe, dynamic scripts can still be cached (and minified, and gzipped) </li></ul><ul><li>a personalized response should still be cacheable for that person </li></ul>
