Even Faster Web Sites: Performance Best Practices for Web Developers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Performance is critical to the success of any web site, and yet today's web applications push browsers to their limits with increasing amounts of rich content and heavy use of Ajax. In this book, Steve Souders, web performance evangelist at Google and former Chief Performance Yahoo!, provides valuable techniques to help you optimize your site's performance.

Souders' previous book, the bestselling High Performance Web Sites, shocked the web development world by revealing that 80% of the time it takes for a web page to load is on the client side. In Even Faster Web Sites, Souders and eight expert contributors provide best practices and pragmatic advice for improving your site's performance in three critical categories:

  • JavaScript—Get advice for understanding Ajax performance, writing efficient JavaScript, creating responsive applications, loading scripts without blocking other components, and more.
  • Network—Learn to share resources across multiple domains, reduce image size without loss of quality, and use chunked encoding to render pages faster.
  • Browser—Discover alternatives to iframes, how to simplify CSS selectors, and other techniques.

Speed is essential for today's rich media web sites and Web 2.0 applications. With this book, you'll learn how to shave precious seconds off your sites' load times and make them respond even faster.

This book contains six guest chapters contributed by Dion Almaer, Doug Crockford, Ben Galbraith, Tony Gentilcore, Dylan Schiemann, Stoyan Stefanov, Nicole Sullivan, and Nicholas C. Zakas.

Synopsis:

As an important follow-up to O'Reilly's bestselling "High Performance Web Sites," this second edition offers additional rules for speeding up Web page loading and responsiveness.

Synopsis:

How do you turn website visitors into customers?

With this book, you'll examine various techniques for blending successful website sales approaches with the particular needs of your business and the people you want to attract.

Based on the authors' years of experience in helping businesses bring customers to the online cash register, Conversion Optimization addresses every aspect of the process, from landing visitors to finalizing the sale. This book will help you increase the buyer to visitor ratio significantly, whether you're involved with marketing at a large e-commerce site or manage a modest online operation.

  • Walk through the different stages of a sale
