After what might have been the most tense few hours of my life, both the main site and forums are now serving content to you using HTTP/2. This is part #1251 of the never-ending quest to make the site faster
You can see the before:
And now the after:
Notice that the load time went from 3.29 seconds to 1.09 seconds. The amount of data transferred seemed to have doubled with HTTP/2, though. My initial guess was that GZIP was getting disabled, but from using a 3rd party site, that doesn’t seem to be the case. Do any you know why the amount of data transferred went from 325 KB to 597KB?
Independent of the file size issue, the site feels faster. Maybe it is just psychological. Who knows?
