14 Rules for Faster-Loading Web Sites

This is a forwarded copy from Steves Souders‘ blog site. These rules are the key to speeding up your web pages. The key insight behind these best practices is the realization that only 10-20% of the total end-user response time is spent getting the HTML document to the browser. We need to focus on the other 80-90% if wanna our pages faster, and these rules are the best practices.

These pages are the companion web site for the book High Performance Web Sites. The examples referenced in the book are hosted here. Each rule page also contains a link to the Yahoo! Developer Network Performance Blog. There you will find a brief summary of the rule along with comments.
