Re: The 512 Club

I started another thread (you’ll see it) on WebP before seeing the above. :/

Re: The 512 Club

I wasn’t asking but just discovered there’s an ImageOptim for Linux (but costs money) and also this free online service which I will try. It doesn’t offer as much control as Squoosh which was used for images here.

I found that for very fine-grained images (especially those with fine grain background), webp images are larger that jpg to get the same quality. otherwise subtle lines and details are smoothed into blandness. But for most images (and for those with a plain background) webp is the way to go (at 84% compression in my case to achieve results comparable with 80% jpg compression).

I can also recommend XnConvert if you want a capable, freeware-for-personal-or-educational-use image processor.

+1 for Pingdom Tools (though watch out, they were bought by SolarWinds a while back[…]

I hadn’t visited that site in ages and was quite amused to see the SolarWinds logo “proudly” displayed.

More seriously, take care with (many) of those online tools, as they often use the older Google scripts (from back when “search console” was called “developper (something… which I forgot)1”. The GT Metrix site linked upthread by Destry relies on the more recent LightHouse scripts – more reliable and accurate.

The older script stubbornly and constantly always complain that I should “compress my assets”, and it always boils down to fonts not being gzipped… No silly dummy woff and even more woff2 are compressed formats.

Use the Browser provided developper tools, tells you a lot. The current version of Chromium/Blink based browser include Lighthouse.

Re: The 512 Club

Just out of curiosity I have just submitted Textpattern.com to the 521KB Club – as the homepage (the heaviest page of the whole site) is now 463KB uncompressed due to some extensive performance work I’ve just done on it (and Pete’s solid server scaffold). GTmetrix results snapshot.

IMO any exposure is good, though I take previous comments in this thread into account.

Re: The 512 Club

I submitted my redesigned thriftmac.com site. Came in at 195.8

One of the challenges I set for myself was to have no JavaScript. That probably helped.

I mention Textpattern in the About article.
