Improving download speed for website is one of the important factors for your website. Most people who use the Internet will be ignored if in a few seconds a website is not downloading anything. Below you will find a summary of the series "Accelerate Your Website." This is a very effective way to ensure your website to be downloaded faster.

Optimize images: Always use the "Save for Web" in the photo editing software, so that your images are optimized automatically. Moreover, you can use an online tool to optimize images such as "Online Image Optimizer"

Image format: in addition to optimizing the images, choosing the right format is also very important. JPEG format suitable for photographic or true color images (true-color). GIF format should be used with the image plane (flat-color) as the logo or the button. PNG works like GIF, but PNG support more colors.

Optimize CSS files: Nowadays, most websie designed with CSS. You need to include and tidy CSS files. CleanCSS is an online tool will incorporate the tag (tag), eliminate the unnecessary utility and the space in your CSS file.

Use the forward slash in the link
: when user opens a link in the format such as https://www.webmastersun.com/forums/32-Buy-Sell-or-Trade then web server will have to analyze it is a file or Web link. If you add a slash at the end of the link, the web server will know it is a directory, which will reduce the time of downloads.

Using the HEIGHT and WIDTH attributes: many people are unaware of two more attributes HEIGHT and WIDTH in <img /> tag. These two attributes tell the browser the size of the image before downloading. By knowing the right image size, the browser will keep a place for the image while loading the rest. Adding these two factors will increase the speed of the web browser.

Reduce the HTTP request: when a web page is opened, all objects (images, scripts and text) will be sent back to the web server requirements. The love object too much to download at the same time will slow down the download of a page. You need to reduce the number of graphical objects on a page to a minimum necessary to combine CSS files and script files into one file.

Yeahhh...speed could be a problem sometimes, especially when you are using poor hosting company or shared hosting.
Image size is very important. Recently, I improved the speed of my website by switching from PNG to JPEG images and reducing the animated gif on my pages.
Animated gifs looks pretty very good and impressive, but it slow down the loading time, especially when GIF had a lot of frames.
One of my GIF had 2132.37 KB !! :rolleyes: My Goodness!
Just imagine loading such element on mobile device? :eek: :D
