We analyzed page load time and found that the first response time was 526 ms and then it took 1.9 sec to load all DOM resources and completely render a web page. This is quite a good result, as only 30% of websites can load faster.

Page optimization

  • HTML 50.5 kB
    Images 2.9 MB
    Javascripts 161.8 kB
    CSS 303.2 kB

    In fact, the total size of main page is 3.4 MB. 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. Images take 2.9 MB which makes up the majority of the site volume.

    • Original 50.5 kB
    • After minification 43.2 kB
    • After compression 10.4 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 7.3 kB, which is 14% 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 40.1 kB or 79% of the original size.

    • Original 2.9 MB
    • After optimization 2.5 MB

    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. Obviously, Hudson needs image optimization as it can save up to 398.3 kB or 14% of the original volume. The most popular and efficient tools for JPEG and PNG image optimization are Jpegoptim and PNG Crush.

    • Original 161.8 kB
    • After minification 161.0 kB
    • After compression 55.0 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 106.8 kB or 66% of the original size.

    • Original 303.2 kB
    • After minification 184.6 kB
    • After compression 26.7 kB

    CSS optimization

    CSS files minification is very important to reduce a web page rendering time. The faster CSS files can load, the earlier a page can be rendered. needs all CSS files to be minified and compressed as it can save up to 276.5 kB or 91% of the original size.

Our browser made a total of 49 requests to load all elements on the main page. We found that 57% of them (28 requests) were addressed to the original, 14% (7 requests) were made to and 6% (3 requests) were made to The less responsive or slowest element that took the longest time to load (526 ms) belongs to the original domain

Additional info on


The browser has sent 48 CSS, Javascripts, AJAX and image requests in order to completely render the main page of Hudson. We recommend that multiple CSS and JavaScript files should be merged into one by each type, as it can help reduce assets requests from 18 to 1 for JavaScripts and from 4 to 1 for CSS and as a result speed up the page load time.
