Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
we’re introducing a module for the Apache HTTP Server called mod_pagespeed to perform many speed optimizations automatically. We’re starting with more than 15 on-the-fly optimizations that address various aspects of web performance, including optimizing caching, minimizing client-server round trips and minimizing payload size. We’ve seen mod_pagespeed reduce page load times by up to 50% (an average across a rough sample of sites we tried) -- in other words, essentially speeding up websites by about 2x, and sometimes even faster.
We’re also working with Cotendo to integrate the core engine of mod_pagespeed as part of their Content Delivery Network (CDN) service.
mod_pagespeed integrates as a module for the Apache HTTP Server, and we’ve released it as open-source for Apache for many Linux distributions.
I'm on a dedicated server and it overloaded our servers and crashed it. Anyone else get this?
Does anyone else ever initially react to things like this by thinking along the lines of "Oh no, now everyone will have a fast site, not just people who know what they are doing!"?
