These are a number of different techniques and ideas for increasing the performance of web apps and sites that I've come across in my work.

General

  • Use the coverage tool in Chrome to identify how much CSS/JS is not being used. 1

Fonts

Images

  • All images should have height and width. Doesn't need to be exact, but they should have the right aspect ratio. In CSS set the width to 100% and height to auto. 1
