Page optimization

  • HTML 25.0 kB
    Images 45.1 kB
    Javascripts 282.8 kB
    CSS 103.0 kB

    In fact, the total size of main page is 456.0 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. 30% of websites need less resources to load. Javascripts take 282.8 kB which makes up the majority of the site volume.

    • Original 25.0 kB
    • After minification 23.2 kB

Obviously, Mete METU needs image optimization as it can save up to 7.6 kB or 17% of the original volume. The most popular and efficient tools for JPEG and PNG image optimization are Jpegoptim and PNG Crush.

    • Original 282.8 kB
    • After minification 251.3 kB
    • After compression 77.3 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 205.6 kB or 73% of the original size.

    • Original 103.0 kB
    • After minification 78.5 kB
