Click here to check amazing Science Forums content for India. Otherwise, check out these important facts you probably never knew about

We analyzed page load time and found that the first response time was 377 ms and then it took 2 sec to load all DOM resources and completely render a web page. This is quite a good result, as only 35% of websites can load faster.

Page optimization

  • HTML 117.1 kB
    Images 173.4 kB
    Javascripts 145.1 kB
    CSS 0 B

    In fact, the total size of main page is 435.6 kB. This result falls beyond the top 1M of websites and identifies a large and not optimized web page that may take ages to load. 40% of websites need less resources to load. Images take 173.4 kB which makes up the majority of the site volume.

    • Original 117.1 kB
    • After minification 94.4 kB
    • After compression 16.1 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. This page needs HTML code to be minified as it can gain 22.7 kB, which is 19% 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 101.0 kB or 86% of the original size.

    • Original 173.4 kB
    • After optimization 165.1 kB

    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. Science Forums images are well optimized though.

    • Original 145.1 kB
    • After minification 140.4 kB
    • After compression 53.5 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 91.7 kB or 63% of the original size.

Our browser made a total of 65 requests to load all elements on the main page. We found that 60% of them (39 requests) were addressed to the original, 15% (10 requests) were made to and 8% (5 requests) were made to The less responsive or slowest element that took the longest time to load (589 ms) belongs to the original domain

Additional info on


The browser has sent 63 CSS, Javascripts, AJAX and image requests in order to completely render the main page of Science Forums. We recommend that multiple CSS and JavaScript files should be merged into one by each type, as it can help reduce assets requests from 12 to 1 for JavaScripts and as a result speed up the page load time.











Possible request optimization

As for redirects, our browser was forwarded to before it reached this domain.

IP address uses IP address which is currently shared with 4 other domains. The more sites share the same IP address, the higher the host server’s workload is. It is strongly recommended that the host server should be changed or the hosting provider should be requested to give a different (separate) IP address for this domain.

Language claimed in HTML meta tag should match the language actually used on the web page. Otherwise can be misinterpreted by Google and other search engines. Our service has detected that English is used on the page, and it matches the claimed language. Our system also found out that main page’s claimed encoding is iso-8859-1. Changing it to UTF-8 can be a good choice, as this format is commonly used for encoding all over the web and thus their visitors won’t have any troubles with symbol transcription or reading.

HTTPS certificate

SSL Certificate has no SSL certificate. Web browsing can be safer with HTTPS connection, so we suggest that it should be obtained for this site.

Normal result

Visitor World Map

Country of origin for 39.9% of all visits is India. It lies approximately 4640 miles away from the server location (United Kingdom) and such a long distance can negatively affect website speed, as it takes some time for data to travel back and forth between those places. That’s why one of the best ways to speed up page load time for the majority of users is moving the server to India or just closer to the user base.
