Google PageSpeed Update Adds Turbocharging To Web Sites
This week Google has updated their PageSpeed web service which has been developed and created to automatically speed up the loading of your web pages, making surfing even more pleasurable.
Google PageSpeed first launch in its beta form a year ago, and the idea behind it is that it collects content from servers then rewrites the pages by applying the best web practices for performance and then delivers them to end users via Google’s servers across the globe, providing a faster surfing experience when possible.
The speed of Google PageSpeed is dependant on a number of factors such as browser, website content, geographic location, and bandwidth to name just a few. Google explains its new feature:
“We are constantly working on new optimizations (rewriters) that can make pages load even faster. Along these lines, we are introducing a new rewriter called “Cache and Prioritize Visible Content”. This rewriter enables users to start interacting with the web page and consuming the content much sooner.”
Google PageSpeed Service is still currently in beta testing and if you fancy putting the service through its paces you will need to apply for an invite from Google. For more information on the new Cache and Prioritize feature added to Google PageSpeed jump over to the official Google Developers Blog post.
