A blog by Ryan Breen of CloudFloor
This article, the first in a series, discusses the performance impact of the number of HTTP requests, concluding that reducing this number is the most cost-effective way to reduce response time. This is consistent with my own experience as well as the recommendations from Brad Neuberg’s (frequently cited here) Ajax optimization tutorial.
The next article from the YUI guys will deal with caching. It’s great to see so many more performance articles these days — it feels like we are turning the corner as more developers focus on how to make Ajax work well rather than just making it work at all.
