Performance matters! Faster websites have been shown to increase visitor retention, loyalty, and satisfaction, especially on mobile. The cause of most slowdowns is the communication between the browser and the server: the realm of HTTP. The new HTTP/2 protocol offers web developers huge performance enhancements, such as multiplexing, compressed headers, and Server Push. Learn how to optimize the performance of your websites using HTTP/2. Senior staff author Morten Rand-Hendriksen shows how to optimize images (one of the biggest resource hogs), code, and file caching, as well as server delivery and browser handling. Learn how to minify HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and use a content delivery network to speed up download times. Ditch the old and restrictive HTTP protocol and enter a new age of the lightning fast web.
