Google Shares Tips to Make the Web Faster!

Posted by @ 6:03 pm

Google have recently launched a new site dedicated to helping website developers optimize their website’s performance and ultimately make the web faster.

Called “Google Speed” the site contains tutorials, tips and performance tools directly from the Google staff. They have kindly passed on what they have learnt throughout their web performance work and experimentation.

Googlers Urs Hoelzle and Bill Coughran explain more:

We are excited to discuss what we’ve learned about web performance with the Internet community. However, to optimize the speed of web applications and make browsing the web as fast as turning the pages of a magazine, we need to work together as a community.

Check out the video provided by Google’s Engineer Team which introduces us to the idea behind Google Speed.

Some of the tools featured on the site include:

  • Google’s own Firefox/Firebug add-on called Page Speed
  • AOL’s tool for measuring and analyzing web page performance called Page Test
  • Yahoo’s Firefox add-on, YSlow, which analyzes web pages and suggest ways to improve performance

There are also some fairly in-depth tutorials for web developers which include topics such as GZIP compression, HTTP caching, web graphics optimization, PHP performance tips, and more.

Google want us all to work together to make the web faster, so if you have ideas then I would suggest sharing them on Google Speed.
