  • Make Pages Fast

    November 16th, 2012
    mod_pagespeed, ngx_pagespeed, tech
    When your machine asks for a page, it takes too long. We help fix that. How?
    • Some pages are really heavy, full of words they don't need. When you ask for a page we give you only the words your machine needs, not all the rest.
    • Pages say "go get this other thing," but that's slow, why do that? So we put the other thing in the page and send you both of them together.
    • Most pages have pictures, but they're heavy pictures. We replace them with light pictures that look the same but arrive faster.
    • Your machine remembers things you've looked at but not for very long. We give each thing a name that changes when the thing changes so your machine may remember it until its head is full.
