Page optimization

  • HTML 72.1 kB
    Images 3.1 MB
    Javascripts 486.9 kB
    CSS 354.6 kB

    In fact, the total size of Epia.org main page is 4.0 MB. This result falls beyond the top 1M of websites and identifies a large and not optimized web page that may take ages to load. 75% of websites need less resources to load and that’s why Accessify’s recommendations for optimization and resource minification can be helpful for this project. Images take 3.1 MB which makes up the majority of the site volume.

    • Original 72.1 kB
    • After minification 68.5 kB
    • After compression 15.0 kB

    HTML optimization

    HTML content can be minified and compressed by a website’s server. The most efficient way is to compress content using GZIP which reduces data amount travelling through the network between server and browser. HTML code on this page is well minified. It is highly recommended that content of this web page should be compressed using GZIP, as it can save up to 57.1 kB or 79% of the original size.

    • Original 3.1 MB
    • After optimization 3.0 MB

    Image optimization

    Image size optimization can help to speed up a website loading time. The chart above shows the difference between the size before and after optimization. Epia images are well optimized though.

    • Original 486.9 kB
    • After minification 463.9 kB
    • After compression 149.6 kB

    JavaScript optimization

    It’s better to minify JavaScript in order to improve website performance. The diagram shows the current total size of all JavaScript files against the prospective JavaScript size after its minification and compression. It is highly recommended that all JavaScript files should be compressed and minified as it can save up to 337.2 kB or 69% of the original size.

    • Original 354.6 kB
    • After minification 314.0 kB
    • After compression 41.0 kB

    CSS optimization

    CSS files minification is very important to reduce a web page rendering time. The faster CSS files can load, the earlier a page can be rendered. Epia.org needs all CSS files to be minified and compressed as it can save up to 313.6 kB or 88% of the original size.
