There's a time bomb on the web: user patience. It starts ticking each time someone opens one of your pages. You only have a few seconds to get compelling content onto the screen. Fail, and you can kiss your customers and profits goodbye.
Derzeit tritt ein Problem beim Filtern der Rezensionen auf. Bitte versuchen Sie es später noch einmal.
Wer also seine Website schneller und besser machen moechte, wer einiges mehr ueber Dinge wie Bilder- oder Seiten-Kompression lernen moechte, wer nach Tricks rund um effektives HTML und CSS sucht, dem kann ich dieses Buch uneingeschraenkt empfehlen.
Selbst einem alten Hasen wir mir ist der eine oder andere Aha-Effekt nicht erspart geblieben :)

The author has gathered more knowledge on the subject than I have ever seen in one place anywhere. Real examples and authorities are cited to take the suggestions beyond the realm of personal opinion. This is a most satisfactory and valuable book.
I might not be able to do all the author suggests since the need for speed must be balanced with other costs such as maintainability by development team members, etc. but now I have a much better idea on what those costs are and how to deal with the options available.
Page download and processing speed is a fascinating aspect of our work -- with lots of surprises.
This book has lots of those new things for you.
The book follows this discussion with the idea that it's not enough to speed up a web site. To improve user experience and keep them on a web site longer, flow becomes an important factor. As for me, I am always trying to build sites that flow well. It's very annoying to visit a web site that has inconsistent color schemes, a plethora of navigation techniques. Hey, use all the cool techniques that you want but if it doesn't flow then I'm not impressed. Give me something that is simple and pleasing to use and I would probably hang around longer. This book stresses flow but doesn't spend much time on the subject.
With the concentration on coding techniques and optimization of code, I can understand why this book is recommended for experienced developers and designers; however, this book is organized such that a beginner could read the first three or four chapters and then do follow-up reading as their skills progress. With that said, I think this book could have presented more details on site flow; but overall, this book is worthwhile reading. With almost 500 pages, it's jammed full of research and useful examples and techniques on web optimization. I have built many web sites and fine tuned them. This book is a gold mine. With its awesome amount of coding optimization techniques and examples, I am sure that I can double the speed of my web sites.
When we speak of usability, we typically speak of navigation, architecture, legibility, linking, screen size, and browsers. Also key is optimizing your site for fast downloads and this is more than just optimizing gif and jpg images. More people on broadband? Maybe, but not necessarily. Even broadband users have their limits in how long they will wait for a page to load. It's a business problem since it impacts revenue.
Been designing for less than a year? More than four years? Not even a designer, but involved somehow? The book is for all levels and anyone who has a hand in a Web site including decision makers. Experienced designers may have many of the optimization techniques down, but the book brings up others you may not have thought about. I've had my own Web site since 1993 and learned a few new tricks.
Andrew King has written about Web design for a long time and walks the walk as well as talks the talk. He has used his own Web site, Webreference.com, as a case study many times to show how to improve the site design. One reason he and Webreference.com have been well-respected is because everything is in reader friendly English.
Another book? No time to read it? The book is organized to make the most of your time. Use it while you're working on the Web project and refer to it often. You'll understand what King writes the first time and not have a need to re-read it until it makes sense.
If the words HTTP, client, server, and compression sound too techie, King's writing style has a calming effect so readers can understand and apply the concepts. Sites of every size and kind will benefit from this complete reference to create Web sites faster than a speeding bullet. We're all suffering from information overload, including broadband users, get to the book quick.
