Google releases an Apache module to optimize web page delivery

1 Comment

Google has just released mod_pagespeed for the Apache web server.  Mod_Pagespeed automatically speeds delivery of web pages by optimizing HTML, combining and caching CSS and JavaScript, and automatically managing and adjusting cache times for relatively static elements.  Web developers can concentrate on building good sites. Let the system figure out how to optimize it.

A reviewer says that the module made his Drupal site “blindingly fast”, but he cautions that it broke some of the javascript.

This is certainly something to watch.

  1. Well, this site has been flaky with the module enabled so I've disabled it. I'll turn it back on with the next update and see how it goes.
