Our browser made a total of 25 requests to load all elements on the main page. We found that 4% of them (1 request) were addressed to the original Python.ca, 72% (18 requests) were made to Python.org and 8% (2 requests) were made to Ajax.googleapis.com. The less responsive or slowest element that took the longest time to load (317 ms) relates to the external source Ssl.google-analytics.com.

Page Optimization Overview & Recommendations

Page size can be reduced by 316.4 kB (63%)

Content Size

-82%

Potential reduce by 44.1 kB

  • Original 53.6 kB
  • After minification 42.0 kB
  • After compression 9.5 kB

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. This page needs HTML code to be minified as it can gain 11.6 kB, which is 22% of the original size. It is highly recommended that content of this web page should be compressed using GZIP, as it can save up to 44.1 kB or 82% of the original size.

-9%

Potential reduce by 2.1 kB

  • Original 23.2 kB
  • After minification 21.1 kB

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. Python images are well optimized though.

JavaScript Optimization

-53%

Potential reduce by 44.3 kB

  • Original 82.9 kB
  • After minification 82.6 kB
  • After compression 38.6 kB

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 44.3 kB or 53% of the original size.

CSS Optimization

-65%

Potential reduce by 225.9 kB

  • Original 346.0 kB
  • After minification 346.0 kB
  • After compression 120.1 kB

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. Python.ca needs all CSS files to be minified and compressed as it can save up to 225.9 kB or 65% of the original size.

The browser has sent 17 CSS, Javascripts, AJAX and image requests in order to completely render the main page of Python. We recommend that multiple CSS and JavaScript files should be merged into one by each type, as it can help reduce assets requests from 6 to 1 for JavaScripts and as a result speed up the page load time.
