We have implemented a new set of compression technology to reduce the size of pages sent to the browser. This is especially important for mobile browsers since the connect speed is slow and anything we can do to reduce the size of downloaded pages is a win.
For example, some of the file size reductions have been:
- 35 KiloBytes (KB) to 7 KB
- 19 KB to 4.5 KB
- 88 KB to 16 KB
This improves the average response times for mobile users by about 10%.
We continue to work hard to make the user experience as fast and efficient as possible, and are proud to rank in the top 10% of all sites monitored by New Relic.
