Consider the following test result.
1. Can you please clarify, why there is a “[color=#FF0000]Big Red X[/color]” for “Cache Static” for request #1 (text/html)?

Cache-Control: private, max-age=0
Keep-Alive: timeout=5, max=99
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
2. Also, there are no nice “[color=#32CD32]Green Checkboxes[/color]” for request #2 (13a.css) and request #8 (13a.js) for “Minify JS”. Is it ok?
3. Also, may I suggest – if “Document Complete” (or possibly “Load Time”) is faster than 1.0s, for “CDN detected” column issue “[color=#FFA500]Warning[/color]” instead of “[color=#FF4500]Failed[/color]”.
#1 It doesn’t look like you’re caching your main HTML file, correct? Max-Age = 0.
Not sure (but this is why I am asking). Google also uses “max-age=0”. And it is absolutely ok to not cache root text/html. In worst case this is some kind of warning.
You might consider creating the background images in to a Sprite and running all the images through ImgOptim. You’d also benefit from Google Pagespeed. At some point getting any quicker is irrelevant though if you’d loading in sub-second times.
Thanks for sprites. I’m already doing heavy spriting – all layout is 100% css sprite. All other images are for Google Images.
By the way, I’m doing quite well in site benchmarks. See by yourself
