Page optimization

  • HTML 206.0 kB
    Images 636.4 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. 75% of websites need less resources to load and that’s why Accessify’s recommendations for optimization and resource minification can be helpful for this project. Javascripts take 949.5 kB which makes up the majority of the site volume.

    • Original 206.0 kB
    • After minification 198.5 kB
    • After compression 32.1 kB
