In this talk, we describe how LinkedIn used RUM (real user monitoring), beyond its monitoring use-case, to improve content download times of the LinkedIn site by up to 25%. We describe the techniques used by LinkedIn to drive many optimizations using RUM; and show how they can be used by others to solve similar problems.

Service workers provide a fully programmable in-browser proxy which presents a fairly open slate for doing all kinds of things.

All with effectively no changes to the pages themselves.
