Want a faster website?

Steve Souders (Chief Performance Yahoo!) has written a great, blissfully short, new book on how to significantly improve your website's performance by making better use of caching, compression, and other straightforward tweaks.

Highly recommended.

You can buy the book for about 20$ here:
High Performance Web Sites: Essential Knowledge for Front-End Engineers

Future updates to Fiddler will make it even easier to follow Steve's advice and enable you to more easily benchmark your site's performance.
