Google has created a Website for developers that is focused exclusively on making Web applications, sites and browsers faster. The site – code.google.com/speed grew out of Google’s decision to publicly share a set of best practices the search company has developed over the years.
By offering tutorials, tips and performance tools via the new site, Google wants to help make the Web faster by assembling a community of developers interested in online speed and performance. Apart from tutorials and downloadable tools, the site will allow developers to submit ideas, suggestions and questions via a discussion forum and by using Google’s Moderator tool.
The site currently covers tutorials on various optimization aspects such as:
- CSS optimization
- Gzip compression
- HTTP caching
- Improving performance with Page Speed
- Minimizing browser reflow
- Optimizing web graphics
- PHP performance tips
- Prefetching resources
- Properly including stylesheets and scripts
It also has a collection of Google recommended tools for helping you discover and improve your site.
