CssVerificator is a Rails application which checks 5 CSS items for performances. This prototype has been created by Benoit Goyette.
- 42% Don’t GZIP CSS
- 44% Have more than 2 CSS external files
- 56% Serve CSS with cookies (yummy to eat, bad for static content)
- 62% Don’t minify (check out the YUI Compressor!)
- 21% Have greater than 100K of CSS
We then decided to create a service that would help Web developers fix these 5 items only. We believe in small steps.
