Test results look good?

I’m pretty happy with the results but if anybody has any suggestion to improve:

That’s a lot of stuff happening before the initial render. You should be able to make it quite a bit faster:

  • Combine together a bunch of those css files. Optimally you’d have 1 that is sitewide, 1 for page-specific styles and maybe one for the Google fonts (bonus points for inlining the styles needed for the above-the-fold content and loading the remaining css at the end).

  • That’s a lot of fonts (and there are strange things causing some of them to be requested multiple times). Do you really need that many? If so, Ilya Grigorik had a great talk at Velocity last week about loading fonts and the video should be available in a few weeks. He also has a great blog post on it here: https://www.igvita.com/2014/01/31/optimizing-web-font-rendering-performance/

  • Why don’t you allow users to pinch-zoom the page?
