Images take 781.9 kB which makes up the majority of the site volume.

    • Original 100.4 kB
    • After minification 95.5 kB
    • After compression 17.9 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. HTML code on this page is well minified. It is highly recommended that content of this web page should be compressed using GZIP, as it can save up to 82.5 kB or 82% of the original size.

    • Original 781.9 kB
    • After optimization 678.3 kB

    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, Engineering Rice needs image optimization as it can save up to 103.6 kB or 13% of the original volume. The most popular and efficient tools for JPEG and PNG image optimization are Jpegoptim and PNG Crush.

    • Original 399.6 kB
    • After minification 399.6 kB
    • After compression 118.0 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 281.6 kB or 70% of the original size.

    • Original 73.2 kB
    • After minification 57.3 kB
    • After compression 11.2 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. Engineering.rice.edu needs all CSS files to be minified and compressed as it can save up to 62.0 kB or 85% of the original size.
