Make the web a faster place. Pretty please.
Call to action! Make the web a faster place! Here's a short article on how I spent 45 minutes to improve user-perceived performance on our website. This is the low-hanging fruit of front-end web performance optimizations.

If everyone takes these steps, the web will be a more enjoyable place to visit.
