A fantastic article from the folks at New Relic.
This article reminds me of the "old" web, when we had to deal with 14.4 modems. When every K counted, and trimming bytes off an image made a difference. The mobile space is the new 1994.
I'm sure it won't surprise Jared in the least to hear me say this, but speed absolutely IS a feature!
@Chuck - "old web" nothing, and mobile nothing, front-end optimization is important for any website, and oft-overlooked!
Yes, James has shown me the light. You'd be surprised how big of a difference an extra 100 KB in payload can make in the user experience. This is still something that is very important and most likely will be for a long time to come.
