I recently made some tweaks that seem to really bump up website performance.
The site doesn’t need to be blazingly fast, we just don’t want people to turn away because of interminable page loads. I think ideal is under 1s, and we must be under 2s response in such conditions. We’re easily meeting those requirements.
In the longer term I intend to replace the font-awesome font icon file, which is huge & doesn’t play nicely with dyslexic fonts, with loading specific SVGs (or maybe SVG sprites). That should reduce the cold start page load time even further.
