Pivotal Reasons to Choose the Magento Performance Optimization
One of the most essential indicators of web page activity and speed is TTFB (Time to first byte). This is an actual period between an original request to a server and its response. TTFB should be lower than 1 sec.
Web pages would look blank and unattractive without bright visual elements. Often images compose up to 60% of the web page size. When you optimize images by compressing, you significantly decrease the total size of web pages.
Merging CSS and JS files and their minification
Merge means combining same-type files into a single file. You will quickly notice the difference when your browser will load one merged CSS-file of 1Mb quicker, than five CSS-files that weight 200Kb. All because of fewer requests to a server.
Minimizing the HTML content of a page can also improve the page speed. A browser will deliver, parse and render HTML code faster when it is actually minified.
Google Page Speed Optimizer extension is a great helper when you need assistance in merging and minifying JS/CSS files effectively. It will also provide defer parsing of JS and minify HTML.
Focus on reducing page size
Reduced requests number to a server
There are four stages of request processing:
- a request is being delivered from a browser to a server.
- then it is being processed on the server-side
- then it is being delivered to the browser
- and the response is being processed on the browser side
All these stages require time that is why the more requests the browser makes, the slower a web page loading speed is.
