Great book on web site performance

Just when we thought we don’t need to worry too much about web site performance anymore, because PCs seem to have unlimited performance and are connected to broadband networks, come along mobile devices that are very capable yet resource restrained and connected to unreliable comparatively slow networks.

Steve Souders‘ book Even Faster Web Sites: Performance Best Practices for Web Developers is thus again more relevant than ever.

It will help you improve the performance of your web site or web applications considerably, by explaining among much more

  • how to improve load times
  • how to improve CSS rules efficiency
  • why and when you should avoid iFrames
  • how and why you should load CSS/JavaScript dynamically

Even though the book is 5 years old it is filled with interesting information that will help you make fast HTML applications.  And on mobile devices this is even more important.
