Day 1 – Two Week Campaign

It is the first day of my Two Week Campaign. It is very important to start everything correct in the beginning.

Day 1


I did following changes on Yinfor Site, including David Yin’s Blog.

The changes I made is based on the following concept.

Audience always likes faster web site. Audience always likes web site shown without errors.

First of all, my small job is to make my web page loading faster.

1) Combine CSS files and do not use @import to include other css file

2) Optimize Images on homepage. Got 5% reduction on image size.

3) Minify javascript file, mt.js, it cut 15KB.

4) Minify CSS file, it cut 9KB

5) Leverage browser caching of static assets. Such as jpg, png, gif files. I make them expired in 60 days.

The overall effects are: less connections, smaller files.

Make the webpage faster

During past few months, I feel my blog is loaded slower and slower. Especially when I compared it with the past.
At yesterday night and this morning, I did some fine tuning of my blog. To make the webpage loading faster and also make my blog reader happy.
1) Remove the Google Plus button which is previous showing on the menu.
Every single page of article has its own Google Plus button. So remove this sitewide one.
2) Add width and height of every images of the template.
The improvement is big.
I use the previous post as an example.
Before changes:
First View Load Time is 9.619s, First Byte 0.465s, Start Render 3.368s.
Now:
First View Load Time is 6.099s, First Byte 0.421s, Start Render 0.777s.

Opera Upgrade to 11.0

The Version of Opera Browser is 11.00. Build 1156. Just upgrade to it few minutes ago.
I feel Opera is one of the fastest Internet browser, if it is not the fastest.
It has following new features:
Tab stacking
Dragging one tab over another allows you to create groups of tabs. Now you can keep dozens of webpages open, organized and under control.
Safer address field
The address field has been improved and now hides the complexity of long web addresses. It also provides more security information to help you stay safe when browsing; just click the badge for the website to see security information about the site you are visiting.
