Creating faster web applications

Writing about web page

Users always want things to be faster…the times of 14kbps modems and slow load times are over, the bottleneck is no longer the network but is instead the speed of our web applications.

Serving out a bunch of static web pages is easy, but in the times if dynamically generated, database heavy, user personalised pages…things are getting slower. Thankfully our machines are getting faster too, but they never seem to be fast enough for users.

This article on has a few good words on the subject.

  • It is about perception of speed, not actual speed
  • Remove the waiting time, not the time taken for an actual activity
  • Instant feedback via AJAX
