re: What makes this site so quick? VIEW POST


Not a dumb question at all. If making a website fast were an obvious thing, everyone would be doing it.

This is my most recent post on the matter.

It boils down to a few things:

  • Really leaning into edge caching with our CDN Fastly
  • Eliminating render blocking tail latency
  • Swapping pages in "single page app" style and sending less data across the wire for each requests.
  • Preloading some of the HTML from requests you're likely to make next.

That's it. Plenty of attention to detail.


Woah thanks. And also thank you Ben Halpern for creating, what is now officially my new favorite place on the internet.
