Faster Websites and the related PowerPoint deck presented in the first paragraph provide useful tips on perf optimization for your website.

The only tip I disagree with is #13, turn off ETags. The tip neglects the fact that (for IIS at least) you can have your servers use synchronized ETags to prevent the load-balancing problem.


  • In the book (you can read it on Safari RoughCuts) Steve notes that ETAGs can be configured (see for IIS) so that they're not a problem, but he notes that even some major sites fail to do this.
