- About Us
This is a really nice book outlining some important Web performance keys. The only downside is that by being almost three years old, it’s already dated. But some of the core concepts are not going to change because they are key to having a web page display and work properly.
Steve Souders even goes into detail on which CSS selectors you want to avoid because they slow things down and how you can speed those up. Some of the changes he suggests are more useful for high-volume websites like AOL and Bing, but even those of us with sites seeing considerably less traffic can use some of his suggestions. And don’t we all hope to run such a site some day?
To top it off, he has a nice list of tools in an Appendix for those of us looking for more tools to help us with our jobs.
In all, a book well worth reading.
